Last week I worked on the following problems:

1. texlive-bin

I made a new patch which uses UTC in the printed timestamps to
also make the timezone reproducible. A version of texlive-bin containing
this patch can be found in the reproducible builds git repository and
package repository.

- Upstream bug report:

2. man2html

As part of the effort to make bash reproducible I patched man2html to
produce reproducible html output by using $SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH.

- https://bugs.debian.org/796130

3. bash & gap-guava

This packages were missing the tag fonts_in_pdf_files [1] Packages.yml
has been updated to contain this information.

4. wiki updates

I modified the TimestampsProposal wiki entry by adding links to the bug
reports against texlive-bin, texi2html, doxygen, and CDBS [2].

Kind Regards,
