      Though Debian’s effort here is commendable I think the title is stretching the truth a little. “Trying to shut down the CIA” they are not, though I suppose it’s catchier than “trying to stop the CIA (and other government agencies considering themselves above the law) injecting code through the platform’s build system to conduct illegal surveillance.”

        It’d be much better to point this to the original talk:

        http://media.ccc.de/browse/conferences/camp2015/camp2015-6657-how_to_make_your_software_build_reproducibly.html#video

        Or even better, look at the corresponding Lobsters post:
