- My shifted perspective issue on the sides was solved (great!), and
- I had gained quite a bit of screen real estate (great!), but
- Because of the curvature, the bottom task bar now looked bent (Oh Noes).

dh_installinitsource files in a stable order. Chris Lamb found how to make cython output deterministic by ordering the keys used to traverse a
dict. Reiner Herrmann proposed a patch for pyside-tools to remove the timestamps embedded by
rccin the generated Python code. Mattia Rizzolo rebased our custom version of debhelper on version 9.20151126. As no objections have been made so far, Mattia Rizzolo has filled #805872 asking
-Wdate-timeto be turned on by default in dpkg-buildflag. Guillem has since sent a final warning before proceeding as such in the next dpkg upload. Russ Allbery added support for SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH in podlators 4.00 which Niko Tyni intend to backport to Perl 5.22. Packages fixed The following packages have become reproducible due to changes in their build dependencies: fontforge, golang-github-tinylib-msgp, libpango-perl, libparanamer-java, libxaw, sqljet, stringtemplate4, uzbl, zope-mysqlda. The following packages became reproducible after getting fixed:
help2maninstead of embedded copy.

armhfbuild node has been added (resulting of two more
armhfbuild jobs). Thanks to Vagrant Cascadian for putting this Raspberry Pi 2B to help. (h01ger) jenkins.debian.net has been made more robust against network and proxy failures. (h01ger) A new 100 GB partition has been set up on reproducible.debian.net to prevent disk space issues. Thanks to ProfitBricks for its continuous support to our continuous test system. (h01ger) New graphs showing usertagged bugs have been added on the dashboard to measure the progress without FTBFS issues. Please note that comparing the two graphs might be misleading as more than 1300 FTBFS bugs have been inventoried. (h01ger) Package reviews 78 reviews have been removed, 116 added and 49 updated this week. 25 new FTBFS have been filed by Chris West, Chris Lamb and Santiago Vila. New issues identified this week: timestamps_in_documentation_generated_with_libwibble, copyright_year_in_documentation_generated_by_sphinx, timestamps_in_documentation_generated_by_glib_genpod, random_order_of_tmpfiles_in_postinst, random_order_in_cython_output, timestamps_in_python_code_generated_by_pyside. Reiner Herrmann and Lunar improved the prebuilder script: the script can now be called through a symlink, run parallel builds, calls diffoscope by its new name and ensure to install its recommends, and save the text output aside the HTML one. Reiner also added a script to lookup the last update of notes for a given package. Misc. Santiago Villa has been recently working on making sure that
Arch:allpackages were properly buildable by running
dpkg-buildpackage -A. This uncovered a question that is probably not currently addressed by the policy: on which architectures should architecture-independent be buildable?
Debian is undertaking a huge effort to develop a reproducible builds system. I'd like to thank you for that. This could be Debian's most important project, with how badly computer security has been going.
PerniciousPunk in Reddit's Ask me anything! to Neil McGovern, DPL. What happened in the reproducible builds effort this week: Toolchain fixes More tools are getting patched to use the value of the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment variable as the current time:
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCHto the time of the latest
debian/changelogentry when exporting build flags, patch sent as #791823 (Dhole),
libxslt(Dhole) with the aforementioned support for
TZ=UTCand this made packages capturing the current date (without the time) reproducible in the current test environment. The following packages became reproducible after getting fixed:
debian/changelogdate in the manpage.
debian/changelogdate as build date and use
debianas the builder hostname.
debian/changelogdate as bui ld date.
