There are a number of packages in sid can't currently be unpacked with
the default dpkg-source options.
dpkg-source: error: source package uses only weak checksums
This happens since dpkg 1.18.5, apparently
Error out on source packages without any strong digests in
Dpkg::Source::Package, used by dpkg-source --extract, which can still
be disabled with --no-check.
With about 2.5% of the archive test built on tests.reproducible-builds.org with
dpkg, we've caught at least
which would give a linear estimate of roughly 400 broken packages
A mass bug filing (at RC level) seems to be in order, but maybe dpkg
should just warn for a while until packages get fixed? I assume the
Debian buildds don't use --no-check, so binNMUs of affected packages
are probably broken at the moment?
Tentatively setting at 'serious' but feel free to adjust/close if this
is all going as designed.
