I'm going to try and get diffs of the remaining big package differences
and see where we stand. The two big ones I know of are go as a language
for reproducibility and perf. Perf will just be a shear pain to fix,
hopefully the kernel will take patches.

One item is getting to the bottom of why it takes diffoscope beyond
the heat death of the universe to render its verdict on some items.
That would be really helpful to get to the bottom of. The vim-common
difference is actually really simple:

https://autobuilder.yocto.io/pub/repro-fail/oe-reproducible-20210213-0djxo1sn/packages/diff-html/

so I don't know why it took 5 hours to compute that. It suggests
something really silly/stupid is going on. diffoscope should be
amenable to fixes so it would be worth talking to them too...

(I have a fix for the locale problem in vim brewing, it needs a new
buildtools-extended-tarball)

Cheers,

Richard
