Hi -devel,

The reproducible-builds team are currently contributing patches with
"wishlist" severity.

This is because it is not currently possible to build reproducible
packages within sid itself - we maintain a separate repository whilst
our changes to the toolchain are pending review and consultation.

Filing these bugs with a higher severity -- which would require
developers to use this repository to fully test any modifications --
would be unacceptable.

However, based on an informal survey at DebConf (and to reflect the
feeling towards software reproducibility in the free software community
in general) unless there are strong objections I intend to raise the
severity of these wishlist issues to "important" once the toolchain
changes to dpkg and debhelper land in sid.
