Wpackage-contains-timestamped-gzip

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.108.13. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package contains a gzip-compressed file that has timestamps. Such files make the packages unreproducible, because their contents depend on the time when the package was built.

Please consider passing the "-n" flag to gzip to avoid this.

Please refer to https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds for details.
