Bug Description

GNU and debian, amongst others, are working to make software builds reproducible. bzr as currently coded fails that due to time and date stamps in the autogenerated documentation. Either remove these or adapt to use debian's proposed SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment variable which provides last revision date. (Jelmer removed time stamps in rev 6603 of Apr 2015, date stamps remain.) Refer to debbugs #782858.

Part of the consideration for reproducible builds involves reproducible build environments.[0] In the same build environment, with the same code, every build should produce the same output.
