It was a poor choice of words. Apologies for that.
Essentially, the interface between reproducible builds and the tracker
is too leaky and pushes decisions about what to display and where to
the tracker when they should be made by the reproducible builds
Having only a mapping between package name, message to show and URL to
link back to would be best. This would avoid breaking URLs in the
future as the JSON would contain the right URLs. This would avoid
showing things on the tracker when reproducible builds folks don't
want them to be shown. For example, if RB folks start caring about
unreproducibility introduced in security uploads, that should be
reflected in the JSON and not require changes to the tracker code.
I hope that helps and I am sorry for what I said on IRC yesterday.
