Progress on reproducible Debian Live images

Hello lists,

I've created a Wiki page that details my progress in creating
reproducible live images, since I wrote to these lists on 2020-11-11.

Short summary:
* The smallest image is reproducible for Bullseye. All non-reproducible
causes in 'live-build' itself have been identified by me and reviewed
and merged by Luca Boccassi and Raphaël Hertzog (Thanks!).
* The 'standard' image is reproducible, if fontconfig and mdadm are
patched. For fontconfig I've created a patch that works for live-build,
but not for all other tool that might who need it. For mdadm I'm
finalizing a patch.
* Buster images have more non-reproducible packages, but many issues
have been fixed for Bullseye already

Long summary:
Read the full Wiki page, which contains the command lines, etc.

With kind regards,
Roland Clobus
