Comment 10 for bug 685571

There is nothing preventing the build job URL from being included in the manifest as well. The point is that the build job URL is the first object allocated in the entire process. Any subsequent artefact including the manifest, log files, source package and binary packages can contain it.

It's the version number of the binary packages that cannot be included in the manifest because the manifest is generated too early in the process. That's fine, right? If you have a link back to the logs then using purely deterministic processes becomes less important.
