Actually, it's sufficient if there is a single person doing this
when there are reproducible builds. Or even someone setting up
a checker bot once.
Now, as an NSL-issuing entity you need to come up with a source
code modification that induces a backdoor, and is reasonably
defensible by a dev, and then force that dev to include
this change into the git repo, and defend it in reviews.
