/!\ This is a draft/discussion for a spec in development. Some code and other notes are here: https://github.com/infinity0/rb-prefix-map/tree/master/consume

This is a standard that defines an environment variable BUILD_PATH_PREFIX_MAP that distributions can set centrally, and have build tools consume this in order to produce reproducible output.

Before implementing this, you should scan through our checklist to see if you can avoid implementing it.
