Comparing .deb and APKs is misleading when talking of tools. A given .deb will have dependencies. APKs are self-contained. This makes `.deb` hard to use without a repository for anything substantial.

With the current .buildinfo signing scheme, we require the Debian maintainer to provide a package that can be built reproducibly. Then we can require a proof of that reproducibility from the maintainer, any other maintainers, and any number of buildds. These assessments that a build can be properly reproduced can come after the initial upload. We can only do that if the .deb files do not change after they hits the archive. -- Lunar .''`. lu...@debian.org : :Ⓐ : # apt-get install anarchism `. `'` `-
