[rb-general] Core Debian reproducibility: how close?

How close is the core of Debian to being reproducibly built? By core I mean the packages that you always have to install no matter what.

The Debian web page on this shows the progress on packages, which is impressive, but it doesn't give any sense of how many of the most important packages are reproducible, or whether the packages that are actually delivered currently are reproducible using the current deployed tools.

I don't care if the build directories have to be in fixed places; with containers and chroots that is easy.

If that is already answered somewhere, please let me know where that is answered. I couldn't find it.
