Hi jathan,

See, for example:

If you take a look at the /usr/share/dpkg/ file itself,
it should be fairly clear what it exports to the outside environment.

In the python-daiquiri example, I'm using DEB_VERSION_UPSTREAM for a
reproducibility-related reason, but you should be able to see how it
applies to SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH too :)

No worries about the delay. Note that I've added 877470 at to
the CC; generally when a question pertains to a specific bug, it's a great
idea to ensure that the conversation is archived there. Keeps everyone sane
too as it's easy to "load" context after a few days/weeks. :)

Best wishes,
