[Reproducible-builds] simple next step for getting .buildinfo files into Debian

Hi ftp folks,

while we still appreciate your comments on this proposal as last week 
described in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=763822 I'd like 
to make a intermediate very simple proposal, so that reproducible builds in 
Debian get one step forward:

- modify dak, so that it will not rejects uploads with a .buildinfo file 
- still, for now, throw the .buildinfo file immediatly away.
- only do this for experimental at the beginning. (maybe this restriction is 
not even needed/useful.)

That's it.

This would allow the dpkg maintainers to enable .buildinfo file creation, at 
least for builds for experimental.

What do you think?

As I see it, this should be a rather trivial code change for dak and yet bring 
us forward quite enourmously. Also it should be rather uncontroversial as we 
all agreed in Heidelberg at DebConf15 that we want .buildinfo files in Debian…
