Hello lists,

here is a fourth update of the status for reproducible live-build ISO
images [1].

* All major configurations are still built regularly using live-build
and bullseye [2]
* All major configurations are reproducible now, Jenkins is green
** I've worked around the issue for the Cinnamon image
** The patch was accepted and released within a few hours [3]
* My main focus for the last month was on the live-build tool itself
** It will properly use the proxy for all http traffic [4]
* I've initiated a discussion on a method for recording the
configuration used by live-build
** I didn't find the time yet to properly summarise and respond

Future plans:
* Add bookworm live-build images
* Reprotest might be used instead of just 2 builds without a short time
frame, to capture more variations
* I will test the functionality of the generated ISO images using OpenQA
** I've already contacted Philip Hands for an introductore meeting
* Long term: When live-build images are working fine, the work could be
extended to other images, e.g. the live-wrapper images, the netinst
images or perhaps even Docker images

With kind regards,
Roland Clobus
