Hi Jeremiah,

Thanks a lot for your willingness. I do not have some presentation or
written document in specific as content for that session. Mi plan is to
explain at the beginning of the session what is Reproducible Builds
using a presentation I made on 2017 in Spanish for the Hack Meeting 2017
in Mexico City and CubaConf17 in Havana
After this I will show the Debian ReproducibleBuildsHowto
https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/Howto and the Reproducible
Builds Documentation
https://reproducible-builds.org/docs/source-date-epoch/ as a good
references to getting start involved in a technical way with
Reproducible Builds stuff. Following that we will do a Debian Packaging
introduction based on Eriberto Mota's Debian Packaging session he shared
during DebConf19 and which I have attended doing succesfully the
exercises with dh_make, debuild and lintian
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJMN-EPijFM&feature=youtu.be) The
purpose with the Debian Packaging content will be to identify the
elements that are essential to make a package reproducible in a
practical way and finally we will try to make our hello.newbie.c package
reproducible. The whole session will take 4 hours. It would be great to
have the assistance you say as far as possible :) This session will be a
skill sharing workshop learning and doing by trial and error. What do
you think?

Best regards
