Hi,

While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that mapivi could not be built reproducibly.

The attached patch sets the embedded date in the man pages generated by
podman to the latest debian/changelog entry timestamp instead of local
date. Once applied, mapivi can be built reproducibly in our current
experimental framework.
