yes, they should be reported. thats why they are listed on 

There is *no* need to list them on tracker.d.o, in fact, I consider this 
*harmful*: once you start showing false negatives, people are less likely to 
believe the results, thus people start to mentally ignore them.

Please dont make this happen.

Please only show reliable results from reproducible.d.n on tracker.d.o - ftbfs 
bugs are not reliable. Please exclude them. 

(What's needed to exclude them would be to include logic from 
reproducible.debian.net which I dont consider sensible.)
