Adrian is speaking of DDPO, not of reproducible-builds.org.
reproducible-builds.org website woud still be free to list other
requirements, and DDPO could even display both results.

I am still concerned that there will be no reliable way for maintainers
to check whether a package is reproducible according to policy before
uploading it to the archive.
