[jira] [Commented] (FOP-2854) CreationDate in PDF metadata breaks reproducible builds

Filippo Rusconi commented on FOP-2854:
--------------------------------------

simon steiner: Thanks for your quick reply.

After having consulted the Debian reproducible-builds crew, it appears that your suggestion to skip lines during binary diff of pdf files is a no-go.

So I wonder if you have any idea of how to direct FOP to fill-in the metadata with a manually-set value? That could be a non-default option, for example.

Thank you,

Filippo

> Greetings,
> I would like to report that the CreationDate value that is set in the PDF file changes at each run. This is problematic because that makes it impossible to run FOP in the context of reproducible builds (see https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds).
> Would it be possible to create an option to set that date value manually or some equivalent solution to this problem ?
> Thank you so much for your work on FOP !
> Regards,
