Here's what happened in the Reproducible Builds effort between Sunday December 31 and Saturday January 13 2018:

Media coverage

Development and fixes in key packages

Chris Lamb implemented two reproducibility checks in the lintian Debian package quality-assurance tool:

  • Warn about packages that ship Hypothesis example files. (#886101, report)

60 package reviews have been added, 43 have been updated and 76 have been removed in this week, adding to our knowledge about identified issues.
