tests.reproducible-builds.org
-----------------------

- Hans-Christoph Steiner gave a progress report on testing F-Droid: we now have a complete vagrant workflow working in nested KVM!  So we can provision a new KVM guest, then package it using `vagrant box` all inside of a KVM guest (which is a profitbricks build node). So we finally have a working setup on `jenkins.debian.net`. Next up is fixing bugs in our libvirt snapshoting support.
- Then Hans-Christoph was also able to enable building of all F-Droid apps in our setup, though this is still work in progress…
- Daniel Shahaf spotted a subtile error in our FreeBSD sudoers configuration and as a result the [FreeBSD reproducibility results](https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/freebsd/) are back.
- Holger once again adjusted the Debian armhf scheduling frequency, to cope with the ever increasing amount of armhf builds.
- Mattia spotted a refactoring error which resulted in no maintenance mails for a week.
- Holger also spent some time on improving IRC notifications further, though there is still some improvements to be made.

Misc.

This week's edition was written by Chris Lamb, Holger Levsen, Vagrant Cascadian & reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC & the mailing lists.
