Notes about issue timestamps_in_qch in unstable

Identifier: timestamps_in_qch
Suites: stretch / buster / bullseye / unstable / experimental
URL: https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/TimestampsInDatabaseGeneratedByQhelpgenerator
Description: There has been done a lot of reproducible fixes in 5.5.0, so it is worth to
wait entering this version sid before retrying.
.
qhelpgenerator inserts a timestamp into documentation (qch) files,
which are sqlite3 databases.
.
sqlite3 databases appear to be reproducible in themselves, but qhelp
generator is using various file IDs which become non-deterministic due to
map access. For example
.
https://sources.debian.net/src/qt4-x11/latest/tools/assistant/lib/qhelpgenerator.cpp/?hl=742#L742
.
I suspect we just need a few sorts (and some time to build qt4-x11...)
