Reproducible builds folks: Reproducible Builds: week 107 in Stretch cycle

Here's what happened in the Reproducible Builds effort between Sunday May 7 and Saturday May 13 2017: Report from Reproducible Builds Hamburg Hackathon We were 16 participants from 12 projects: 7 Debian, 2, 1 ArchLinux, 1 coreboot + LEDE, 1 F-Droid, 1 ElectroBSD + privoxy, 1 GNU R, 1, 1 Meson and 1 openSUSE. Three people came from the USA, 3 from the UK, 2 Finland, 1 Austria, 1 Denmark and 6 from Germany, plus we several guests from our gracious hosts at the CCCHH hackerspace as well as a guest from Australia We had four presentations: Some of the things we worked on: We had a Debian focussed meeting where we discussed a number of topics: And then we also had a lot of fun in the hackerspace, enjoying some of their gimmicks, such as being able to open physical doors with ssh or controlling light and music with an webbrowser without authentication (besides being in the right network). Not quite the hackathon (This wasn't the hackathon per-se, but some of us appreciated these sights and so we thought you would too.) Many thanks to: News and media coverage openSUSE has had a security breach in their infrastructure, including their build services. As of this writing, the scope and impact are still unclear, however the incident illustrates that no one should rely on being able to secure their infrastructure at all times. Reproducible Builds help mitigate this by allowing independent verification of build results, by parties that are unaffected by the compromise. (Whilst this can happen to anyone. Kudos to openSUSE for being open about it. Now let's continue working on Reproducible Builds everywhere!) On May 13th Chris Lamb gave a talk on Reproducible Builds at OSCAL 2017 in Tirana, Albania. OSCAL 2017 Toolchain bug reports and fixes Packages' bug reports Reviews of unreproducible packages 11 package reviews have been added, 2562 have been updated and 278 have been removed in this week, adding to our knowledge about identified issues. Most of the updates were to move ~1800 packages affected by the generic catch-all captures_build_path (out of ~2600 total) to the more specific gcc_captures_build_path, fixed by our proposed patches to GCC. 5 issue types have been updated: Weekly QA work During our reproducibility testing, FTBFS bugs have been detected and reported by: diffoscope development diffoscope development continued on the experimental branch: strip-nondeterminism development reprotest development trydiffoscope development Misc. This week's edition was written by Ximin Luo, Holger Levsen and Chris Lamb & reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC & the mailing lists.
