A while ago I mentioned here that Yocto Project is reproducibile, at
least for its major components. I was asked something like "ok, prove
it". Its taken us a while to get back to it but we now have.
I'm not a regular contributor so don't have access to the above however
I am pleased to be able to say that:
The Yocto Project has now implemented and is regularly running
tests on its reproducibility. These can be seen as a line item in
our "oe-selftest" test runs on our autobuilder. Right now these are
for our minimal images but the tests are generic, available for our
users to use against their own images and our plan is to extend this to
cover all our core recipes over the next months. This functionality
will in in our upcoming 3.0 release.
I was thinking this might be worth a mention! :)
