That's great news!

Unfortunately, the "@" in the --date argument is necessary for it to
work correctly when SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is specified:

  $ date -u "+%F %R:%S %Z" --date=1412583777
  date: invalid date ‘1412583777’
  $ date -u "+%F %R:%S %Z" --date=@1412583777
  2014-10-06 08:22:57 UTC
  $ date -u "+%F %R:%S %Z" --date=
  2017-12-06 00:00:00 UTC

At least, that's how it works on my Debian system...

live well,
