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

------------------------------------

             Summary: CreationDate in PDF metadata breaks reproducible builds
                 Key: FOP-2854
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2854
             Project: FOP
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: renderer/pdf
    Affects Versions: 2.3
         Environment: Debian GNU/Linux
            Reporter: Filippo Rusconi


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,
Filippo
