Package: liblocale-gettext-perl
Version: 1.05-9
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-Cc: reproducible-builds at lists.alioth.debian.org
User: reproducible-builds at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: ftbfs locale

This package fails its test suite on the reproducible.debian.net
CI setup in the "second build", where the build environment is varied
as far as possible from the first one. The list of variations is at


and a failing build log is at


The failure happened identically when I rescheduled another try, but I
haven't found an explanation yet. Similar test failures can be triggered
when the current locale doesn't exist, but that should result in a lot of
stderr noise, and I'm told locales-all is installed in the build chroot.

If all else fails, I intend to upload a debugging version to experimental
with more diagnostics in the test scripts.

The tests are skipped in the first build in the "C" locale, but when
they get run in the second build in the "fr_CH.UTF-8" locale, it looks
like the data returned by domain() isn't localized at all.
