indeed, merging with "#961064: reprotest: should not default to vary time and date"
and raising the severity and tagging help because reprotest is (almost) unmaintained

looking for ways to start contributing to reproducible builds, please do! ;p :)

I'll certainly be happy to review, merge and upload.
