Re: Moving towards a deb-buildinfo(5) Format 1.0

Dear Guillem,

First, thanks for all your great work on this.

> * .buildinfo filename

I personally find the current filenames pretty ugly and would prefer them
to match the .changes file. :) Note that they will also differ in raw
content once signed too (!)

Hrm. Are we sure about this? My gut tells me that the external definition
of the build should not include the Build-Date. (At the very least, this is
just a duplication of SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH?)

> * dpkg-genbuildinfo injects itself into debian/files

(Can you clarify what the issue is here? I've not heard of this before…)

> * Some of the environment variables seem superfluous or leaks

Which were we thinking of including? Perhaps attaching/linking to a
concrete example would be helpful here.
