I quickly looked at your packages and found a few issues:

* filebin - the package is not -git but does pull from git master,
ideally it would use #commit= and maybe verify the commit if it's signed.


* srrdb-terminal-client is not reproducible at least not as you embed
the build date.


   This can be fixed with using SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH as for example is
applied here:


  You can check if your package is reproducible by using `makerepropkg`.
