Meetings and Events
I will talk about my recent work getting reproducible builds on NetBSD. The talk will be based on information that I first posted at:
and it will have more detailed examples of the toolchain, build, and application changes that every OS needs to make to achieve reprodicibility.
I will also discuss the meaning of timestamps and other "build-specific" information that needs to become predictable for fully reproducible builds, and if it is worth faking in the first place to achieve identical built artifacts at the media level.
I live in New York City and work in the Finance Sector. I spend most of my free time with my kids. When they let me I try to write and fix things for NetBSD/file/tcsh/libedit/... and other pieces of code I've worked on over the years.
