Description

... in order to check if it matches an ISO built without faking the time, i.e. whether the build year variation breaks reproducibility.

Performing this test earlier in 2017 is too painful due to various indices and keys having expired.

Use the dateoffset build option to do this.

This can wait a bit, but it must happen in 2017. I'll try to do it.

Today, 2017-12-12, I did a build with dateoffset=+60, i.e. faking the build date as 2018-02-10. The resulting ISO image was identical to the one I got when building without dateoffest, so we're good!
