Hi Andreas, I'm glad you like our efforts and looked at your packages!
Testing more repos is on our agenda, but... so are many things :) I'm forwarding this mail as you suggested and hope someone else from the team will reply sooner than I'll be able to. cheers, Holger ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- Betreff: reproducible builds Datum: Donnerstag, 5. Februar 2015 Von: Andreas Beckmann <a...@debian.org> An: Holger Levsen <hol...@layer-acht.org> Hi Holger, nice to see reproducible builds moving forward :-) Are there plans to check experimental, too? Anyway, I had to try your toolchain on some of my packages (e.g. non-free stuff not that easily coverable) - I don't like these red things in my ddpo page * after fixing the timestamps in a kernel module source tarball, the file order has changed ... I didn't see a corresponding issue in the Wiki to make that deterministic (underlying filesystem is a tmpfs) Curious as I was, I wanted to do a bit more extreme testing, running the first pbuilder build with --twice, but that resulted in differing timestamps for the debian/ directory in the .debian.tar.xz tarball (possible explanation: the initial timestamp of the directory was before the changelog timestamp, so it didn't get updated during the first dpkg-source -b, but after the first build the directory timestamp was updated (since stuff has been created and deleted), so it got reset to the changelog stamp in the second dpkg-source -b) maybe setting the debian/ dir mtime to the changelog stamp always? (should capture most of the reproducible --twice issues) * in beignet I have an unreproducible .pch (precompiler header) file - any hints on what could be going on here? (although I'm more interested in testing the experimental respectively pending-in-git version) some remarks regarding rebuild.sh (I don't use it since it does not fit my pbuilder setup, just took some ideas from it) * you could use --buildresult b1/b2 and avoid copying the buildresult around manually * is it intentional to have --debbuildoptions -b enabled? the first "bug" I fixed was the doxygen timestamps in libvdpau-doc, i.e. an arch:all package ... * I had to add a --configfile $HOME/.pbuilderrc argument ... but I also never used unshare before ... * we should really patch pbuilder to add a --nocheck option :-) Andreas PS: feel free to forward to appropriate mailing lists -------------------------------------------------------
