indeed, that's how I've built. > The correct way to release dpkg is to > «make dist» and then build Debian packages from that tarball. that didnt work, but... > The detailed instructions on releasing can be found on the “How to > release“ section here: > <https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Dpkg/GitUsage> these were helpful indeed, thanks a lot, but this happened: - I kept "UNRELEASED" as distro in debian/changelog - I didnt create a tag for the release… (also because we have the illegal (for git tags) character "~" in our version...) - then I ran "git clean -Xdf" - then I ran "autoreconf -f -i; ./configure; DPKG_DEVEL_MODE=1 make distcheck" which created dpkg-1.18.1-11-g1c825.tar.xz - which is not what I expected as "126.96.36.199~reproducible1" is the version in debian/changelog... What now? debian/changelog inside dpkg-1.18.1-11-g1c825.tar.xz has the correct version, but I assume there's another location I need to change this... If you want to look yourself, our repo is at git.debian.org/git/reproducible/dpkg.git and the branch is pu/reproducibe_builds Thanks again for your support, much appreciated! cheers, Holger
