Notes about issue random_order_in_md5sums in unstable

Identifier: random_order_in_md5sums
Suites: stretch / buster / bullseye / unstable / experimental
Description: order of files in md5sums (in control.tar.gz) differ from build1 to build2. This only happens in
packages not using dh_md5sums and it's easily fixed by sorting the output of "find" before
piping it to md5sum. Example:
.
cd debian/tmp && \
find * -type f ! -regex "^DEBIAN/.*" -print0 |\
LC_ALL=C sort -z | xargs -0r md5sum > DEBIAN/md5sums
