Package: ckbuilder
Version: 2.3.0+dfsg-2
Severity: normal
User: reproducible-builds at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: toolchain timestamps


While working on the “reproducible builds” effort [1], we have noticed
that ckbuilder embeds the build time in two places: copyrigh headers on the
built javascript files, and a ".options.timestamp" field in the generated code
itself. This behaviour make packages generated by ckbuilder (ie: ckeditor)

The attached patch fixes this behaviour honoring the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH [2]
environment variable.
