Follow-up Comment #5, bug #52076 (project make):

> At the least you should find the original bug report and/or discussion
threads and read through them. I'm fairly sure they'd include their own
metrics demonstrating the value of GLOB_NOSORT leading to a more informed

The commit ChangeLog only mentions
which is unrelated

and 95f1a32d27eef91a8a037522467d7060e7da2624 which added the NEWS entry links
which lists 90 bugs, with a handful related to wildcard
but I found none about performance or sorting

I also glanced over
and the ones for start of June but also did not find anything
so I would be grateful for a pointer to that previous bug/discussion

OTOH the patch is simple enough that I already considered pushing it into
openSUSE which would solve the issue for us, but I thought it would be nicer
to let everyone profit from such a nice fix (instead of having to touch 100+
packages to fix each of them individually) to make them build reproducibly.
( See https://reproducible-builds.org/ on why this matters )
