Well, I've been debugging why u-boot stopped building reprodicbly, and it appears to be that the recent fix that really switches armhf to build with it_CH.UTF-8 locale actually breaks u-boot reproducibility.
So, just for comparison, I also tested with other locales, including some with non-latin "alphabets" and other countries just to vary as much as possible, and the following all built reproducibly with each other: C el_GR.UTF-8 ru_RU.UTF-8 ar_EG.UTF-8 zh_CN.UTF-8 es_ES.UTF-8 fr_CH.UTF-8 et_EE.UTF-8 ja_JP.UTF-8 ko_KR.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8 And these locales built reproducibly with each other: it_CH.UTF-8 it_IT.UTF-8 Haven't really figured out *what* the actual issue is, but figured I'd share my confusion. With this as evidence, there appear to be two kinds of locales, Italian, and not-Italian. At least when it comes to u-boot. :) live well, vagrant
