While working on reproducible builds for openSUSE, I found that the xpra package varied for every build because of variations in build_info.py
With the attached patch, it is possible to avoid these variations and create identical packages anywhere anytime
Thanks for the patch.
I've merged it with some changes since we can't drop useful data just because some platforms have no need for it: r21103.
Feel free to re-open if I've missed something.
I tested that your variant worked. For that I had to pull the diff out of svn, which trac would not let me do, so I created https://github.com/bmwiedemann/xpra and keep it up-to-date via a cron-job for everyone's convenience.

Every trac patch page has a link to the raw patch, at the bottom of the page under Download in other formats. You can also use svn from the command line as per SVN create patch from committed code.
