I think that reprocibility is an important issue, and marking reprocibility bugs as important makes sense to me. That, please also include a script to test builds for reprocibility in e.g. devscripts (see #786755) so that maintainers can actually test it themselves. -- Antonio Terceiro <terce...@debian.org>
