Overall, looks good to me!

very minor grammatical/meaning clarification:

  s,at that timestamp,at the time specified in the timestamp,

The only other thing I noticed was:

+        <title>Other examples</title>
+                     <para>
+                           Other examples are available at <ulink

Kind of unfortunate to embed a debian-specific wiki link in a spec that
may not get updated often; if I/we cut-and-paste the content on that
page into a reproducible-builds.org docs page soonish, it would be nice
to link to that instead. Not sure it's worth blocking on that, if for
some reason that takes too long.

live well,
