Description Alexander E. Patrakov 2011-04-22 10:46:45 UTC
When I build dev-python/docutils-0.7 twice (without python3, if that matters), the package contents are not the same, even if I ignore differences in build timestamps embedded in the generated files. Namely, the following files differ:


They refer to different versions of the python logo (i.e. something like before the rebuild vs after the rebuild).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -av1 --buildpkg =dev-python/docutils-0.7
2. emerge -av1 =dev-python/docutils-0.7
3. unpack the package, compare the contents of the package with the live files, like this:

diff -U0 -rN tree1 tree2 | grep -E -v '^(diff|---|\+\+\+|@@ )' | grep -v Generated

Actual Results:  
-<img src="" alt="[Python]"
+<img src="" alt="[Python]"
-<img src="" alt="[Python]"
+<img src="" alt="[Python]"
-<img src="" alt="[Python]"
+<img src="" alt="[Python]"
-<img src="" alt="[Python]"
+<img src="" alt="[Python]"

Expected Results:  
No output

Comment 1 Dirkjan Ochtman gentoo-dev 2011-10-07 11:33:15 UTC
Does this still happen with newer versions of docutils?
Comment 2 Alexander E. Patrakov 2011-10-07 11:50:45 UTC
Yes, this is still a cosmetical issue with dev-python/docutils-0.8.1. Python3 doesn't matter.
Comment 3 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2011-10-08 05:07:18 UTC
docutils.writers.pep_html.Writer.interpolation_dict() by default uses random numbers:
            import random
            subs['banner'] = random.randrange(64)
Comment 4 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2012-12-31 11:38:10 UTC
This is not really something to fix at our end. It's a cosmetic issue, and it's mostly something upstream has decided to do. If you believe it shouldn't be done like that, the upstream bugtracker is the place you're looking for.
