rebuilding Maven Central Repository artifacts: welcome reproducible-central

I'd like to announce a new important step for Reproducible Builds for the JVM:

The intent is to provide easy to run reproducible recipes, to let anyone
rebuild a component from Central Repository that is expected to be
reproducible and check that the result is as expected.

See for the current
list of project releases that are rebuilt and checked (with sometime only
partial success).

When someone publish a new release that is expected to be reproducible, don't
hesitate to provide a PR with the recipe (= a .buildspec file), testing it by
running "./ path-to-recipe.buildspec" (then updating by
running "./"

In the future, this little Github repository should become something better
than a git repository, but this is a first step: improvement ideas welcome.
If someone is interested also to improve to support other build 
tools than Maven, don't hesitate.
