I think this makes sense, but it can be equally changing: eg we might want to 
provide version numbers too...

I'm not sure "we" will ever care about those, as in, I rather envision a 
future where unreproducible packages are not part of testing nor stable…

To say it differently: I'm not sure reproducible-tracker.json will be the data 
source in the future...

it does! Now I just wonder whether to reassign this bug to qa.d.o (and usertag 
it jenkins.d.n) or keep it here... (or maybe close and file a new one?)
