The extra red probably came from LTO-related build failures
or packages that started to fail for other reasons, but in my env
there had still been the old working build.

The extra unreproducible packages probably came because some packages
had been built with more determinism than normal and after the
rebuild, the tweaks were not applied again.
https://rb.zq1.de/compare.factory/reproducible.json lists the
"opensusetweaks" determinism-bits, but I did not yet get to
incorporate it into the graph.

it is not obvious in bugzilla, but the "History" link shows that at
2019-09-10, a "depends on"
has been added - because we found that for some files the rsync used
in pushing to mirrors did not push files that kept their mtime (due to
S_D_E) when the content did actually change in relevant ways.

Maybe we can also have a discussion on how to best set S_D_E for image
Or with respect to toolchain updates.
