thanks for writing this up so clearly, I've never seen it before.

I'd like to preserve this, probably on the wiki, just I'm struggling where to
put it, any ideas? Maybe even in "Status" on
https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds ? or maybe rather on 
https://reproducible-builds.org/docs/ but that "only" (visibly?) links the
spec, but no explaination pageā€¦
