Source: abi-compliance-checker
Version: 1.99.9-2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
User: reproducible-builds at lists.alioth.debian.org

While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [0], we have noticed
that abi-compliance-checker generates output that is not reproducible.

The attached patch removes timestamps from the HTML report output. The
version names, as well as the package that the report is shipped with,
should be more than enough to identify a particular report.

Once applied, packages that ship abi-compliance-checker output can be
built reproducibly in our reproducible toolchain.
