Notes about issue timestamps_in_static_libraries in unstable

Identifier: timestamps_in_static_libraries
Suites: stretch / buster / bullseye / unstable / experimental
Description: .a files are ar archives. Since binutils 2.25-6 they should be deterministic
by default, but there are some remaining buggy corner cases - see
bug #843210 for example if the package uses binutils-multiarch.
(#843210 has been fixed in sid now, hopefully this issue becomes moot now.)
Other tools that create ar archives directly should in theory be covered by
strip-nondeterminism, but it is still good to patch them.
