while you thankfully added links to unreproducible packages on 
reproducible.debian.net you've also added links to packages which fail to 
build from source there, as can for example be seen on 

Please don't do that, ftbfs issues on reproducible.d.n can have several causes 
not steeming from the package (eg half of the 700 ftbfs errors in unstable 
come from 
and there are more, like those caused by #677666 or #780587 or others.

IOW: ftbfs issues on reproducible.d.n are - _somewhat_ - "false negatives" atm 
and thus should not be brought to the maintainers attention on tracker.d.o 
right now.

Just listing the unreproducible packages is pretty good already!

Thanks for tracker.d.o!
