I unnecessary-source-date-epoch-assignment

All reports of unnecessary-source-date-epoch-assignment for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

There is an assignment to a SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH variable in the debian/rules file.

As of dpkg 1.18.8, this is no longer necessary as dpkg exports this variable if it is not already set. However, you can also include /usr/share/dpkg/ or /usr/share/dpkg/ to ensure it is exported.
