Reproducible work in other projects
Ximin Luo has had his fix to bug 77985 accepted into GCC. This is needed to be able to write test cases for patches to make GCC produce debugging symbols that are reproducible regardless of the build path.
There was continued
on the mailing list regarding our build path proposals. It has now been decided
to use an environment variable
SOURCE_PREFIX_MAP instead of the older
SOURCE_ROOT_DIR. This would be similar to GCC’s existing
-fdebug-prefix-map option, which allows for better disambiguation between
paths from different packages.

Reviews of unreproducible packages
145 package reviews have been added, 608 have been updated and 94 have been removed in this week, adding to our knowledge about identified issues.
3 issue types have been updated:
- Added 1 new issue docbook_to_man_one_byte_delta.
- Updated 2 existing issues randomness_in_r_rdb_rds_databases and r_base_appends_built_header_to_description_files.
Weekly QA work
During of reproducibility testing, some FTBFS bugs have been detected and reported by:
- Chris Lamb (17)
- Matthias Klose (2)
- Valerie improved the SQL code so that the scheduler job again runs within minutes. She did the same to the job updating the notes about known issues, though this job still runs 12min and not 2min as it used to do…
- Thanks to a patch from Chris, which was improved by dkg and h01ger after discussions on our list, the .buildinfo files submitted to buildinfo.debian.net are now GPG signed by our build nodes.
- Holger fixed the NetBSD and coreboot jobs which were broken due to work on the LEDE+OpenWRT jobs.
- As squid on jessie/i386 (but not on jessie/amd64) crashes frequently, we have have monitoring for this and Holger fixed a subtile bug there.
- Daniel Shahaf:
- Mattia Rizzolo:
This week’s edition was written by Ximin Luo, Chris Lamb and Holger Levsen and reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC.
