I think a bit more is needed to get truly reproducible builds in U-Boot,
but this is a first good step!
I have been thinking about bringing reproducible builds to U-Boot for a
little while, but never got around actually doing it. Are you interested
in helping me on that? I have some free time these days, so I could do
some work on this.
It would certainly be relevant to get in touch with the people working
on reproducing builds for Debian (I know Lunar is involved with this),
since Debian packages U-Boot for many devices and they're apparently
willing to help upstream with automated tests, as they're doing with
coreboot and OpenWRT!
