Source: wsdl4j
Version: 1.6.3-2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch upstream
Usertags: environment

Dear Maintainer,

While working on the “reproducible builds” effort [1], we have noticed
that 'wsdl4j' could not be built reproducibly.

The attached patch use a plain text representation of the copyright
character in the build.xml file, to avoid encoding issues with javadoc.
Once applied, wsdl4j can be built reproducibly in our current
experimental framework.

Alexis Bienvenüe.

The encoding issue has been fixed, but libwsdl4j-java-doc is still not
reproducible. The fix is now in the javadoc tool from openjdk-8 (we have
to hunt down the remaining non-deterministic data structures such as
HashMaps and HashSets), so I'm closing this bug.
