SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH

If the selected output format is PDF, this variable can be used to control the CreationDate in the PDF file.  This is useful for reproducible output.  The environment variable must be set to a decimal number corresponding to a UNIX timestamp, defined as the number of seconds, excluding leap seconds, since 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC.  The specification for this can be found at https://reproducible-builds.org/specs/source-date-epoch/
