Hi! While working on the “reproducible builds” effort , we have noticed that wordwarvi could not be built reproducibly, by design, exposing one of the very very few useful uses of capturing the build time (I have seen) :) quoting from https://sources.debian.net/src/wordwarvi/1.00%2Bdfsg1-3/wordwarvi.c/#L9947 /* * A little joke for the programmers. If *you* built it * from source less than 1 hour ago you get.... * * a million bonus points. * * (Hey, the _very first_ thing the game tells you is * "Uuuuse the Soooource!!!!" It's not kidding. :-) * */ A solution to keep this joke *and* allow reproducible builds at the same time would be to introduce a --distrobuild build switch which distributions could use to disable it. This could be a Debian specific patch at first, but ideally it should go upstream, so that other distros can benefit too. : https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds cheers, Holger
