Notes for ceilometer - reproducible builds result

Version annotated: 2015.1.0-6
Identified issues:
Identifier: randomness_in_documentation_generated_by_sphinx
URL https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/SphinxIssues
Description Sphinx might output references to memory addresses and generate a json index file
with entries in random order or with non-deterministic values (eg. searchindex.js).
See https://bugs.debian.org/822197 for memory address issue
.
searchindex.js needs sort_keys=True (jsonimpl.py) but the key values vary too.
Identifier: user_hostname_manually_added_requiring_further_investigation
Description Packages which intentionally capture the username or hostname into a custom format,
but aren't obviously using any tool or system which has this as a core issue.
Interesting because they could be fixed by fixing these things at build time.
Comments: Embed hostname:
