SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH when embedding dates with the qthelpgenerator tool to
target the newest version in Debian (the patched files didn't change in

have uploaded the updated patched package to our custom APT, and I have
attached the updated patch to the bug entry.(git, APT, bug).

I have also improved the freeipmi patch I sent last week applying all
the suggestions Josch made on the mailing list. I sent the patch to the

issues that didn't have notes yet. I have also added them in the notes
with the bugs and related issues.

- xlsx2csv

timezone difference in metadata timestamps in zip files
- adblock-plus

embedded dates (build time) in man pages
- blkreplay
- libitpp

This Friday I flew to Germany to attend the DebConf15 in Heidelberg,
where I'll meet some of the reproducible builds folks :) (I've already

Best regards,
