Thanks, deb-buildinfo(5) is indeed mentioned in #138409 but doesn't
seem to be done yet. Lunar said in January he'd "rather make sure we all
agree on the fields before getting to it." I suppose that mostly refers
to the ones currently called Environment and Installed-Build-Depends?
Is consensus any nearer now than in February?

It's squashed in the current pu/reproducible_builds branch fwiw,
this was just a changelog comment.
