I'm happy to announce that today I released 3 base Maven plugins (source, jar 
and assembly) to get Reproducible Builds as direct Maven build output: see 
"Configuring for Reproducible Builds" documentation [1] for more details to try 
on your own projects built with Maven.

Next Maven release -- 3.6.3 -- should be the first Maven release that will be 
available with a Reproducible Build: you can test for yourself by building the 
"reproducible" branch [2] with "mvn verify" command and check the checksums 
displayed at the end of the build against reference builds available on Apache 
CI server [3] (choosing the OS and JDK version equivalent to your local build)
