Looking at Debian (with the perspective that I have), there could be
several metrics regarding reproducibility in percent.
The current metric shows how many of the Debian packages are
reproducibly (going from source to .deb), but there are also a few
binary files, that are currently distributed, that build on top of that.
E.g. the live-build scripts generate a binary from a config file and
.deb files to an .iso file.
Such binaries would be:
* (netinst/DVD1) Debian-installer images (the official ones or generated
by simple-cdd or ...)
* live images (generated by live-wrapper, live-build or ...)
* Docker images
Would it be useful to add such additional category in the ecosystem?
With kind regards,
