  • Next Minor Stable Release - patchset that needs to be verified in nightly before backport
  • Eventually - patchset that needs to be verified in alpha before backport
  • No Backport - patchset for the next major stable

Change Description

The problem with reproducibility seems to be related to libc.a not being built in a reproducible way.

I've added a script to re-create this archive, as the trivial changes to libc's Makefile aren't enough.

For the reviewer: let's build an alpha testbuild for all platforms with make torbrowser-testbuild (remember to disable nightly in rbm.local.conf).
