Package: e17
Version: 0.17.3-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
Usertags: timestamps


As part of the effort to have byte-to-byte identical reproducible
builds [1], I've noticed that e17 currently stores a timestamp in the
gzip header of some of its documentation.

Applying the attached patch should fix the issue.
