Description ksraman.91 2017-11-14 04:08:26 UTC
The print/a2ps port is not reproducible. As part of reproducible-builds effort, the port should be reproducible and should not depend on build environment. The README template file has @date@ which depends on current system date and makes the build not reproducible. Please see the below url to know more about reproducible-builds project.
