I was wondering whether you had a brief moment to outline — for those naïve
in the ELF arts — what the buildinfo things are, how they affect us, and
what these recent patches to dpkg mean? I'm afraid I'm a bit lost and I'm
probably not the only one.
Oh, if the explanation gets "too long" for an email, perhaps even consider
a blog post, either on your own blog or the Reproducible one... :)
