Hey Johannes,

… but that would mean that a reproducible build will result in .buildinfo
files with different contents (varying on Build-Date).

That seems, at the very least, somewhat non-intuitive to me.

A case might even be made that varying on Build-Date makes our distribution
problem more difficult; as the files aren't identical we can't easily
"de-duplicate" them with detached signatures. Perhaps I'm missing something
