[Reproducible-builds] Reproducibility of apt-listbugs

Hello reproducible build hackers!

I am the maintainer of apt-listbugs and I have recently noticed that it
was not built reproducibly [1]. The issue seemed to be due to the month
and year inserted by rdtool into the man page.
However, now it seems to be built reproducibly [2].
I am not sure the underlying issue has been really fixed, though: maybe
the recent tests just did not change the month in the build date?!?

Is this something that should be fixed in rdtool [3]? If this is the
case, could you please file a bug report against rdtool?
Otherwise, what should be done?

Please let me know.
Thanks for your time and for your commendable effort in making
Debian reproducibly built.

N.B.: I am not subscribed to the reproducible-builds mailing list;
please CC me on replies, thanks for your understanding.

 There's not a second to spare! To the laboratory!
