Holger Levsen joined #coreboot at irc.freenode.net yesterday to report that
he integrated coreboot into the reproducible builds infrastructure .
After configuring the used build script  to build without a payload,
nice ionice -c 3 \
bash util/abuild/abuild --payloads none || true # don't fail the full job just because some targets fail
it looks like most boards are passing the test now . Big thanks to
Alexander (lynxis) for submitting the necessary patches!
The only exceptions are the six boards below.
* a-trend_atc-6220 (256K) is unreproducible.
* a-trend_atc-6240 (256K) is unreproducible.
* google_nyan (4096K) is unreproducible.
* google_nyan_big (4096K) is unreproducible.
* google_rush (4096K) is unreproducible.
* google_rush_ryu (8192K) is unreproducible.

to be adapted, if a reproducible build with the SeaBIOS payload is
