Reproducible Builds: Weekly report #205

Published: Apr 2, 2019.


Here’s what happened in the Reproducible Builds project between March 24th and March 30th 2019:

Don’t forget that Reproducible Builds is part of May/August 2019 round of Outreachy which offers paid internships to work on free software. Internships are open to applicants around the world and are paid a stipend for the three month internship with an additional travel stipend to attend conferences. So far, we received more than ten initial requests from candidates and the closing date for applicants is April 2nd. More information is available on the application page.

Packages reviewed and fixed, and bugs filed

Test framework development

  • We operate a comprehensive Jenkins-based testing framework that powers tests.reproducible-builds.org. The following changes were done this week:

    • Mattia Rizzolo built a static list of SSH host keys [] so we could build the ssh_config file based on this file [], leading to being able to enable OpenSSH’s StrictHostKeyChecking option [][][].
    • Holger Levsen added a number of links to pages, including Guix’s challenge command [], the F-Droid tests [] as well as NixOS and openSUSE tests [].

This week’s edition was written by Bernhard M. Wiedemann, Chris Lamb & Holger Levsen and was reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC & the mailing lists.
