I'm an Arch Linux contributor packaging the go compiler, your favorite i3-gaps and get angry emails whenever docker breaks. I also help out in the security team publishing advisories and keeping tabs on security issues in the distribution along with Reproducible Builds tooling for users.
Reproducible builds are important to ensure a strong connection between the upstream source code and the compiled binary artifacts distributed by Linux distributions. The previous year has seen great progress in Arch Linux to get reproducible builds in the hands of the users and developers.
In this talk we will explore the current tooling that allows users to reproduce packages, the rebuilder software that has been written to check packages and the current issues in this space.
We will go through the conference organization, the planning, streaming setup, any fun statistics we can come up with and other misc things learned running this conference.
It will be held live.
