As could be seen with mp4h. ;-) > so: we never build *with* faketime, we just build faketime as we build all > the > packages. The reason why I talked about faketime is this: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-wml/mp4h.git/tree/debian/rules#n42 So far it seemed the only way I get most of the issues with mp4h fixed. Now that I've added some SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH support, I can maybe get rid of faketime and still get many of the issues fixed. Then again, in the upload from yesterday I didn't seem to catch all timestamps inside the documentation fixed.
