given that there are 286 packages affected by the problem, what do you think

Most of the 286 packages suffer from HTML timestamps and not from Latex
timestamps that my patch addresses.
The default for HTML_TIMESTAMP in upstream doxygen is to enable
timestamps and my patch for LATEX_TIMESTAMP does the same. Thus, making
an upload to the experimental repository with my patch for
LATEX_TIMESTAMP support will not automatically fix all affected packages.
I can make an upload of doxygen with HTML_TIMESTAMP and LATEX_TIMESTAMP
defaults changed to not embedding timestamps. But if doxygen upstream is
unwilling to change the default or if the maintainers of doxygen in
Debian are unwilling to deviate from upstream in this, then the upload
would not make much sense and instead it would hide a problem.
Furthermore the Doxyfile configuration file embedded in each package
using doxygen is often copied from the upstream defaults and thus
enables HTML_TIMESTAMP. The following query on codesearch.d.n shows that
277 source packages are affected:
So no matter whether my patch to doxygen is applied or not, these 277
source packages will either need individual fixes or a change to doxygen
which allows to ignore the setting of HTML_TIMESTAMP in Doxyfile. I can
implement this but this again has to be discussed with the Debian
maintainers and doxygen upstream.
