Hi Robin,

good luck. You can already start helping with reproducible build stuff,
feel free to ask for advice in #archlinux-reproducible we have toolchain
to be extended and bugs filed against upstream.

find some notes related to your packages:

streem + streem-git
- They don't honor existing CFLAGS and LDFLAGS (later at all).
  For now, you can fix both with a small sed command but i recommend
  bringing this issue upstream as a easy PR.
  Always checking for respect of those flags is important.
- If you touch the Makefile anyway maybe a install target with
  respecting PREFIX and DESTDIR would make sense.

- 80.patch is not a unique file name per se, this is important for
  shared srcdir setups. a prefix using the $pkgname should be better.
- /usr/bin/indicator-sysmonitor invokes stuff and imports py files
  provided in usr/lib. This can result in untracked file creations
  if the application is run as root. cache files should be created
  before packaging, but this should also be possible solved upstream
  for the make install call
- sysmonitor-budgie-git and sysmonitor-appindicator-git should
  also provide their own non-git variants to possibly satisfy
  sysmonitor-budgie or sysmonitor-appindicator instead of the
  general shared indicator-sysmonitor provides.
- just style, but in package() instead of pkgdesc="${pkgdesc}
  you can also simply use pkgdesc+="

- seems to work/build just fine with non-git glfw-x11, is the -git
- LDFLAGS is not properly handled in Makefile leading to non -znow
  (and other flags) linking. should be temporarily fixed in PKGBUILD
  and possibly a patch submited upstream.

- quite weird Makefile with their conf-cc and print-cc.sh calls,
  anyway does not respect CFLAGS and LDFLAGS at all. should be fixed.
  This Makefile made me giggle :D
