Progress on reproducibility of ncdns builds
As part of work to ensure that all Namecoin software can be built and distributed in a reproducible fashion, RBM build scripts for ncdns are now available. These scripts are currently experimental, but will become the preferred way to build ncdns.
The RBM build system is specifically designed to facilitate reproducible builds and is also commonly used to build Tor Browser. The RBM build scripts for ncdns build on the existing Tor Browser build system, which will ease future integration of ncdns with Tor Browser in a reproducible manner.
This work was funded by NLnet Foundation’s Internet Hardening Fund.
