In our experimental toolchain, packages built using `dh` will automatically call `dh_strip_nondeterminism`. Packages using `dh` are the 60% plateau you can see on: https://jenkins.debian.net/userContent/stats_pkg_state.png Since a few days, we are getting more packages considered reproducible as we moved generation of the .buildinfo files to dpkg-buildpackage instead of doing it as a dh stop. > Have you considered filing a wishlist bug against binutils to build with > "--enable-deterministic-archives", so that ar and ranlib operate in > deterministic mode by default? Yes. This is how we did the experiment in January last year: https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/Rebuild20140126 During discussions at DebConf14, it was acknowledged that having `--enable-deterministic-archives` could break some build systems in subtle ways and that it would be better to do without. Unfortunately, I have never been able to get Matthias Klose's opinion on the matter. > Also, what's the current state of #759895? The original patch became part of strip-nondeterminism. I guess it should be updated to ask the inclusion of the following patch: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/reproducible/debhelper.git/commit/?h=pu/reproducible_builds&id=7fbd7ba -- Lunar .''`. lu...@debian.org : :Ⓐ : # apt-get install anarchism `. `'` `-
