Hi, looking at https://reproducible.debian.net/stats_bugs.png I mostly and foremost think "yay" or rather "yay yay yay!" :) And then I also cannot deny that I'm getting a little bit uncomfortable because I believe this is undeniably (and thankfully!) a mass bug filing by us! (Even though mostly done by a few people, you know who you are and you're great!)
So I think we should do a post to debian-devel-announce soonish to formalize announce (and discuss) this mass bug filing but also and foremost announce the huge progresses we made. The following is a suggestion which I'm not entirely happy with, feedback much welcome. I think we should probably move this to etherpad/gobby and fisnih/rewrite it collaborativly there. Subject: Reproducible Builds - a proof of concept showing 83% success currently To: debian-devel-annou...@lists.debian.org CC: email@example.com Hi, this is ment as a short pointer to the "Reproducible Builds" project as described in detail on https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds - in short, reproducible builds are about enabling everyone to confirm independently that a given binary .deb was build from a specified source .dsc. We have been making many great progresses recently, as you might have heard at the last FOSDEM. A summary is available in interview form at https://fosdem.org/2015/interviews/2015-holger-levsen/ - this interview was team work, even though it doesn't look like ;-) If you look at the second graph in https://reproducible.debian.net/reproducible.html you will also see that we have been filing a large amount of (wishlist) bugs (each with a patch) recently, which could be seen as unannounced mass bug filing, if it werent for announcements and discussions at FOSDEM14+15 and DebConf14. You might also have noticed that reproducible builds have been integrated into tracker.d.o, the Debian Developer's Package Overview (DDPO) and the Debian Maintainer Dashboard (DMD). Currently reproducible builds for Debian are still in the phase where we are investigating the best approach. If you are interested to help, please start by reading https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/Contribute Once jessie is released we plan to make reproducible builds a proper release goal for stretch, but we would like to postpone *this* discussion until jessie is out for real. That said, we welcome you to discuss the project now by following up to debian-de...@lists.debian.org, just please keep reproducible- bui...@lists.alioth.debian.org cc:ed for those who are not subscribed to devel. yours sincerely, $list_of_names / the Debian reproducible builds team
