		Hi Reproducible Builders,

Since the conference last year I have integrated the board of directors 
of the NetBSD Foundation, and I will be glad to be a presence for the 
NetBSD project at the RB summit again! A lot of progress has been made 
both for the base system and for the packages, and I will be glad to 
share this with the RB community.

A few pointers:

My own work on the NetBSD packages in particular was focusing on 
hardening the general level of security, and not on building 
reproducibly in particular. However, it involves supporting CFLAGS and 
LDFLAGS across the whole distribution wherever relevant (and verifying 
it), which should therefore tremendously help achieving better results 
when attempting to build reproducibly too.

See you there!
