Paper rough sketch about reproducible builds...

Based upon the conversations I had with everyone at the reproducible builds
summit in Hamburg, I sketched out some rough ideas about how a potential
paper might go.

I would think that emphasizing some of the community's experiences with
using reproducible builds to find other bugs will be the most compelling
stance to take.  I also (over?)state the philosophy of fixing
reproducibility bugs upstream as an effective way to find more of these

Feedback is certainly welcome.  At this point feedback about the very broad
ideas and assertions is more useful than noting I misunderstood or
misstated a specific point.  I'm new to this community, so I apologize in
advance for any errors.

I am happy to help the community to flesh this out and gather results for
the submission.  If you are interested in contributing, please chime in!
