> Bug#867200: fixed in firebird3.0 18.104.22.168703.ds4-5
The following change made the build non-deterministic again:
firebird3.0 (22.214.171.124703.ds4-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Revert "Stop shipping employee.fdb in firebird3.0-examples"
* Revert "stop trying to supply deterministic security3.fdb and employee.fdb
in the package"
* Ship employee sample database as a Firebird database backup (.fbk)
Firebird backup files seem to be more deterministic compared to the raw
database (provided you use faketime -- the backup contains timestamp
of creation). See #867200
My local tests seemed to show that running gbak under faketime makes
it use a deterministing timestamp for the backup, but this didn't work
somehow for the r-b test.
