towards reproducible packages


I have added the following suggestion in debian-ada-policy.  Feel free
to comment or disapprove before anything is published.

Recommendation: If an Ada source is patched, preprocessed, generated or
otherwise modified during the build process, its modification time
should be enforced to the date of the last entry in the Debian

Rationale: An ALI file currently embeds the modification time of all
associated sources. Dates depending on the build time cause
unreproducible @code{-dev} packages. Please see
for more details.
