The build for awesome 4.3 is (no longer) reproducible.
I assume it once was, as it specifically has patches applied in the definition for the sake of achieving reproducibility.
My current checkout:
~$ guix describe
Generation 23 Dec 26 2021 12:19:56 (current)
repository URL: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git
build --check output:
~$ guix build awesome --check -K --no-grafts
guix build: error: derivation `/gnu/store/jg8mzkgw29ym6vh5iy90z5smf4lahgjr-awesome-4.3.drv' may not be deterministic: output `/gnu/store/fcya72kn16vxj6gq7d2xyd2fwr3sbikj-awesome-4.3' differs from ‘/gnu/store/fcya72kn16vxj6gq7d2xyd2fwr3sbikj-awesome-4.3-check’
Please see attached diffoscope output.
It looks like the lua-ldoc output is non-deterministic.
Adding "-DGENERATE_DOC=off" to #:configure-flags seems to fix the issue for awesome.
Not sure if that's considered an acceptable solution though.
I don't use those generated html docs so I don't mind. :D
Perhaps the more correct solution is to patch lua-ldoc upstream.
But from the guix perspective, awesome is the only package depending on it currently, afaict.
