I talked with Holger at ELC-E. The Yocto Project has a strong interest
in reproducible builds, its something we've been working on for a while
but obviously there is much work remaining.

Some issues we have are more specialised to our use cases, such as
paths injected during cross compilation. We did propose some changes to
gcc to allow us to address issues there recently which were accepted.
Others involve our build processes and we have plans such as recipe
specific sysroots to help there. I appreciate there is less common
interest with those. We do however also share many other common issues
related to injected build paths, timestamps and other reproducibility

I'm not sure how to collaborate, our policy is where we have patches,
to get them upstream if we can and that obviously helps everyone.

I would be happy to have the Yocto Project listed as supporting
reproducible builds and to see if there are ways we can collaborate
