* We fixed issues regarding reproducible builds
  ([[!tails_ticket 14924]], [[!tails_ticket 14946]],
  [[!tails_ticket 14933]]) and later realized that one of them fixes
  did not work in some corner cases… that include the ISO images we
  build for the Tails official releases. Sadly, due to an internal
  communication mishap we've announced that Tails 3.3 was reproducible
  before we had learned about this remaining problem.
