I believe the planned next step here is to publish the *.buildinfo files,
which contain a specification of the environment variables the build cares
about, and then Policy can be modified to include a description of
*.buildinfo files and how to use them.  As part of those changes, we'd
certainly update the definition of reproducible to reference matching the
environment specified in the corresponding *.buildinfo file.
