I'd like to introduce reproducible-apk-tools (or repro-apk) [1], a
tool used by F-Droid to make android APKs with minor differences
(caused by e.g. building on different operating systems) fully
reproducible.  At the moment, it consists of two scripts/subcommands:

The fix-newlines script/subcommand changes line endings from LF to
CRLF (or vice versa).

And the sort-apk script/subcommand sorts (and realigns) the ZIP
entries of an APK.
