Source: libnet-interface-perl
Version: 1.012-2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
Usertags: timestamps


While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that libnet-interface-perl could not be built reproducibly.
It embeds the current year into a manpage.

The attached patch amends the existing reproducible-build.patch and uses
the copyright years from the head of the file instead of the current year.
