Hello, This week I was working to make the toolchain package texlive-bin produce reproducible PDF files. A patch was submitted to the responsible upstream, pdftex, and is currently being discussed.
Upstream patch: http://tug.org/pipermail/pdftex/2015-July/008952.html The patch honours the environment variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH which was proposed by the Debian reproducible builds team as a way to have deterministic timestamps . I reported bugs against Doxygen and texlive-bin in Debian in order to keep track of the progress of the upstream bugs. Package: Doxygen https://bugs.debian.org/792201 Package: texlive-bin https://bugs.debian.org/792202 I updated the wiki entries where we are documenting the Doxygen  and texlive-bin  issues to include the information about the use of SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH and the bugs I filed upstream. Kind Regards, akira  https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/TimestampsProposal  https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/TimestampsInDocumentationGeneratedByDoxygen  https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/TimestampsInPDFGeneratedByLaTeX _______________________________________________ Reproducible-builds mailing list Reproducibleemail@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/reproducible-builds
