Unfortunately, while trying to understand why r-cran-gbm was not building reproducibly , I noticed that there might be a compelling reason to merge dh_fixmtimes in dh_builddeb. When DH_ALWAYS_EXCLUDE is specified, dh_builddeb might delete files. When this happens, parent directories get their mtime updated, reverting dh_fixmtimes work. So the ideal moment to set deterministic mtimes is after that pass. Which means integrating the find+xargs+touch in dh_builddeb… : https://jenkins.debian.net/userContent/dbd/r-cran-gbm_2.1-1.debbindiff.html -- Lunar .''`. lu...@debian.org : :Ⓐ : # apt-get install anarchism `. `'` `-
