A CLI tool for querying the reproducibility status of the Arch Linux packages using data from a rebuilderd instance such as reproducible.archlinux.org. It can show the reproducibility status of:

  • packages that belong to an individual package maintainer (uses the data from archlinux.org/packages)
  • currently installed packages on the system (uses the data from pacman local database) You can inspect the build logs and diffoscope of the packages by enabling the interactive mode via -i.
