Reproducible builds folks: Reproducible Builds: Weekly report #121

Here's what happened in the Reproducible Builds effort between Sunday August 13 and Saturday August 19 2017: Reproducible Builds finally mandated by Debian Policy "Packages should build reproducibly" was merged into Debian policy! The added text is as follows and has been included into debian-policy 4.1.0.0:
Reproducibility
---------------
Packages should build reproducibly, which for the purposes of this
document [#]_ means that given
- a version of a source package unpacked at a given path;
- a set of versions of installed build dependencies;
- a set of environment variable values;
- a build architecture; and
- a host architecture,
repeatedly building the source package for the build architecture on
any machine of the host architecture with those versions of the build
dependencies installed and exactly those environment variable values
set will produce bit-for-bit identical binary packages.
It is recommended that packages produce bit-for-bit identical binaries
even if most environment variables and build paths are varied.  It is
intended for this stricter standard to replace the above when it is
easier for packages to meet it.
.. [#]
   This is Debian's precisification of the  reproducible-builds.org
   definition  _.

Niels Thykier: Getting out of the way

I have decided to step down as main maintainer of Lintian and pass the baton to Bastien Roucari s. This is actually fairly old news, since I announced this almost a month ago. However, I was not very vocal about it until now (so do not be surprised if you had not heard of this before). In the past month, I never once regretted having stepped down. If anything, I should probably have done it a bit earlier. Beyond the lack of motivation, I also realised that I had become an all talk and no do -maintainer. The kind that I have been advocating against publicly. This may sound weird to a lot of people, who knows me as the Lintian guy or Mr. Lintian (or whatever Lintian-related nickname people gave me). But the fact is that Bastien has done more for Lintian in the past month than I have in the past two. Despite stepping down as main developer, I have not left Lintian completely. I am still around for helping/explaining, uploading and keeping lintian.debian.org running.

Niels Thykier: Lintian 2.5.18

I have just uploaded Lintian 2.5.18 to unstable. While fixing 22 bugs, it only features 5 new tags. The release also include fixes to some false-positives, such as python:any dependencies triggering python-script-but-no-python-dep, a rewritten README file. We also included a patch to make Lintian accept the Original-Maintainer field by default for non-Debian vendors (even if they do not have a profile and Lintian ends up loading the debian/main profile). We also added support for running Lintian directly from a git checkout or source tree without setting LINTIAN_ROOT (or passing root). Since that was the primary use-case for root that option has now been deprecated. I also had lintian and lintian-info require the include-dir and [no-]user-dir options as the first if given at all. I would like to thank Bastien Roucari s, Gaudenz Steinlin, Gunnar Wolf, J r my Bobbio and Lucas Nussbaum for contributing to Lintian and the many who submitted reports or suggestions for improvements. I would also like to thank Brian hugmeir Fraser, who assisted me in identifying and working around a bug in Perl s glob function when run under threads (filed upstream as RT#119897).
