Hi! I took a look at cwidget to understand why it's documentation was generated in an unreproducible manner.
One issue is the timestamps generated by Doxygen. That's basically solved by a one-liner: --- cwidget-0.5.17.orig/Doxyfile.in +++ cwidget-0.5.17/Doxyfile.in +HTML_TIMESTAMP = NO But that's not enough. `diffp` gave me, for example: ----- ./usr/share/doc/libcwidget-doc/html/documentation/installing.html -<a href="mailto:alioth-de...@lists.alioth.debian.org">email@example.com</a> with instructions on how to +<a href="mailto:alioth-de...@lists.alioth.debian.org">firstname.lastname@example.org</a> with instructions on how to Part of cwidget documentation is actually generated by Ikiwiki. For this particular email address, the Markdown source lies in `doc/ikiwiki/documentation/installing.mdwn`: If your operating system is not listed here, please email <alioth-de...@lists.alioth.debian.org> with instructions on how to install the prerequisites on your operating system. After digging through Ikiwiki source code, I actually realized the culprit for this random transformation of email address: discount. http://sources.debian.net/src/discount/2.1.7-1/generate.c/?hl=770:780#L770 Yes, it contains a macro named “COINTOSS()”. *sigh* Now, I'm clueless about the best way to tackle this. What I can think of: * discount: kill the `mangle()` function entirely. * discount: patch to make usage of `mangle()` an option, argue to make off by default. If that's not accepted, also patch Ikiwiki to disable mangling. * discount: make `mangle()` deterministic (e.g. by using a PRNG seeded by something like input file size). * ikiwiki: patch the markdown generator to unmangle the email links. * cwidget: patch ikiwiki.setup to ask ikiwki to use another markdown generator. This means a new Build-Depends. * cwidget: patch the documentation source to replace the email links by something like `alioth-devel AT lists.alioth.debian.org`. * cwdiget: post-process this madness in `debian/rules`. Any recommandations? Thoughts? -- Lunar .''`. lu...@debian.org : :Ⓐ : # apt-get install anarchism `. `'` `-
