There is an epic journey from reviewed source code to the code you actually run on your computer, and things can go quietly wrong along the way!
We can't do absolutely everything ourselves by hand, so we necessarily put trust into something somewhere along the way.
What happens to your code as it passes through dark forests, trecherous mountain passes, or deep forboding caverns? What if something is quietly corrupting an otherwise trustworthy ally? Help showing up, but with it's own motives?
Reproducible Builds gives a project confidence that the journey from source code to binary code gets you there and back again.
