Hi all,

  (Scroll down the link, but please do read the rest of the email
  before jumping in!)

In order to better grow and understand the Reproducible Builds project
and community, a handful of us are in the process of building an
"ecosystem map".

(For those not familiar with the concept of "ecosystem", please feel
free to check out

To accomplish this, h01ger, gunner and I have brainstormed a big messy
list of "ecosystem participants", and we would now love folks on this
mailing list to build a "clean room" version of the same. In other
words, we are asking you to join in a brainstorm of who and what we
collectively consider or know to be participants, contributors or
active adopters in and around the RB ecosystem.

We would then take "your" list and unified it with our own; we aren't
disclosing our version just yet in order to give you a chance for a
fresh start and to locate any blind spots. (Thanks to Gunner for this
excellent idea.)

We have created an Etherpad here to invite your ideas:

In particular, we're looking for:

* Entities that are participating in some way in reproducible builds
  or have done so in the past. This could be technology projects,
  organisations, individuals, etc. and any type of entity you consider
  to be associated with us.

* Entirely new categories that are not in the list, as well as
  members of any newly added categories.

Please let us know if this request isn't clear, but otherwise please
head on over to the pad linked above and share your thoughts on what
makes up the Reproducible Builds ecosystem!

Thanks again. :)

Best wishes,
