Here’s what happened in the Reproducible Builds effort between Sunday February 11 and Saturday February 17 2018:
Holger Levsen announced there will be a MiniDebConf in Hamburg, Germany from May 16th to 20th where many reproducible builds folks will be in attendance. Whilst this is foremost a “Debian” event, we do hope that people working on Reproducible Builds in other projects will attend as well - please register!
