Bug #13627

created.rid prevents reproducible builds

Added by bmwiedemann (Bernhard M. Wiedemann) about 2 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Status:
Closed
Priority:
Normal
Target version:
-
ruby -v:
ruby 2.2.6p396 (2016-11-15 revision 56800) [x86_64-linux-gnu]
[ruby-core:81550]

Description

rdoc.rb inserts the current time into created.rid
so the file differs across each build,
making it hard for distributions like openSUSE's
to create bit-identical binary packages when those are using rdoc.

See https://reproducible-builds.org/ why that matters
