Package: subliminal
Version: 0.7.4-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: newcomer


Subliminal's build is currently not reproducible:


The reason is that the manpage is generated with help2man and that the
provider list in help does not appear in the same order at each run:

% subliminal --help|grep 'providers to'
                        providers to use (tvsubtitles, addic7ed,
% subliminal --help|grep 'providers to'
                        providers to use (opensubtitles, podnapisi, addic7ed,
% subliminal --help|grep 'providers to'
                        providers to use (podnapisi, tvsubtitles, addic7ed,

Sorting the list should do the trick.

I added the newcomer tag, so I am happy to mentor someone in the
process of fixing this bug.
