This week I have been working on the following problems:

1- Packages which are marked as affected by
timestamps_in_manpages_generated_by_doxygen [1]:

Patches were submitted for the following packages:

- Package: libsyncml

- Package: zipios++

30 out of the 35 unreproducible packages that suffer from
timestamps_in_manpages_generated_by_doxygen belong to the same
maintainer who has been contacted before proceeding to open bugs against
those packages:


2- I added the issue different_encoding [2] for the following package:

- Package: confused

3- I also submitted a patch for cdbs. The patch exports the environment
variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH which was proposed by the Debian reproducible
builds team as a way to have deterministic timestamps [3].

Package: cdbs

I have updated the section in the experimental toolchain about cdbs [4]
and uploaded a version of cdbs with this patch to the reproducible
builds git repository.

4- squashfs-tools was patched to have an additional option which allows
to print user and group id instead of mapping them to the user and group
name on the current system (like: ls -n)

- Package: squashfs-tools

Kind Regards,
