[Reproducible-builds] Bug#823917: strip-nondeterminism: strip timestamps from nested zip files

Package: strip-nondeterminism
Version: 0.016-1
Severity: wishlist


I noticed that the bnd package fails to build reproducibly because one of
the jar files installed (/usr/share/java/bnd-2.4.1.jar) contains a nested
jar (embedded-repo.jar) that isn't processed by dh_strip_nondeterminism.
The timestamps in bnd-2.4.1.jar are properly replaced, but the ones in
embedded-repo.jar still reflect the actual build date.

It would be nice if strip-nondeterminism was able to process the nested
zip files automatically.
