Here's what happened in the [Reproducible Builds](https://reproducible-builds.org) effort between Sunday September 16 and Saturday September 22 2018:
* FIXME: vagrant: *Call for capable armhf dev board donations, link to image, talk(s), etc.*
* A reminder that the **fourth Reproducible Builds summit will take place from December 11th—13th 2018** at [Mozilla](https://wiki.mozilla.org/Paris) in Paris, France. If you are interested in attending please register by sending an email to `holger@layer-acht.org`. More details may be found on the [associated event page](https://reproducible-builds.org/events/paris2018/).
* Bernhard M. Wiedemannup updated `disorderfs` (our [FUSE](https://github.com/libfuse/libfuse)-based filesystem that deliberately introduces non-determinism into filesystem metadata) [to use sys/xattr.h from glibc](https://salsa.debian.org/reproducible-builds/disorderfs/commit/387844f) as newer `libattr` versions have dropped their own `xattr.h` header.
* Daniel Shahaf started an interesting discussion on [our mailing list](https://lists.reproducible-builds.org/listinfo/rb-general) regarding [reproducing tarballs under various toolchains](https://lists.reproducible-builds.org/pipermail/rb-general/2018-September/001148.html). As a result, Daniel actually uncovered an [argument parsing bug in `libarchive`](https://github.com/libarchive/libarchive/issues/1068). Volunteers are welcome to [assist with documenting the GNU `tar` / BSD `tar` interoperability concerns](https://salsa.debian.org/reproducible-builds/reproducible-website/issues/3) that came up!
* Jelle van der Waa [removed the SVN `propset` identifiers](https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2018-September/029371.html) from the [Arch Linux](https://www.archlinux.org/) repository. This will make reproducing packages possible when the `PKGBUILD` is obtained from Git; previously [the `BUILDINFO` would differ](https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2018-August/029355.html) due to Git lacking the aforementioned identifier.

* An [issue was opened in the CPython bug tracker](https://bugs.python.org/issue34022) regarding test failures regarding the [`SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH`](https://reproducible-builds.org/specs/source-date-epoch/) environment variable which actually proposes to revert the previous changes.

* [openSUSE](https://en.opensuse.org)'s wiki page [on their approach and resources regarding reproducible builds](https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Reproducible_Builds) was linked on our IRC channel.
* Chris Lamb also updated the SSL certificate for [buildinfo.debian.net](https://buildinfo.debian.net/).
* Holger Levsen switched back to recent `i386` kernels on all `i386` build nodes and rescheduled all currently-failing [KDE](https://www.kde.org/) packages which can be seen on the [KDE package set](https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/debian/buster/i386/pkg_set_kde.html) page.
* Recently Holger switched back to recent i386 kernels on all i386 reproducible builds build nodes and last week he rescheduled all ftbfs kde packages on i386 for r-b and the effects of this can nicely bee seen on https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/debian/buster/i386/pkg_set_kde.html . maybe even include the graph in the blog post? FIXME: provide links to bugs and maybe add this bit: the bug is not fixed yet, we work around by not using i386 kernels and thus losing 32/64bit kernel variation testing...
* Chris Lamb also updated the SSL certificate for [buildinfo.debian.net](https://buildinfo.debian.net/).
* Jelle van der Waa [removed](https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2018-September/029371.html) svn propset id's from the Arch Linux svn repository. This will make reproducing packages possible when the PKGBUILD is obtained from git, previously the BUILDINFO [would differ](https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2018-August/029355.html) due to Git lacking the svn propset id.

* Lastly, Mattia Rizzolo temporarily [marked the `jtk1b-armhf-rb.debian.net` node as offline](https://salsa.debian.org/qa/jenkins.debian.net/commit/2e935533).
* FIXME: Holger added code to automatically mark nodes as offline, so maybe this was even the last time this was done manually ;)
