The Debian Sid repository is not garanteed to be stable, as his
'unstable' name suggest :)
To allow quick testing, packages are pushed various time a day,
which my be annoying when trying to use it for stable development
(which is not recommended, but Sid provides edge packages we use
for testing).

Debian provides repositories snapshots which are suitable for our
use. Pick a recent date that works. When required, update to newer
releases will be easy.

This fixes current issues with this image:

  $ make docker-image-debian-sid
  [...]
  The following packages have unmet dependencies:
   build-essential : Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.17.11) but it is not going to be installed
   git : Depends: perl but it is not going to be installed
         Depends: liberror-perl but it is not going to be installed
   pkg-config : Depends: libdpkg-perl but it is not going to be installed
   texinfo : Depends: perl (>= 5.26.2-6) but it is not going to be installed
             Depends: libtext-unidecode-perl but it is not going to be installed
             Depends: libxml-libxml-perl but it is not going to be installed

There is an error in "my be" -> "might be"...
Do you mind to update the comment:

By:

To allow quick testing, Debian maintainers might push packages
various time a day. Sometime package dependencies might break,
which is annoying when using this repository for stable development
(which is not recommended, but Sid provides edge packages we use
for testing).

I can resend as v2 if you prefer.

Thanks!

Phil.

OK after much debugging and re-building I realise this isn't the whole
fix. We need to base the snapshot on an older docker image otherwise we
run into the problem of trying to downgrade. In my tree I've done:

  # This must be earlier than the snapshot date we are aiming for
  FROM debian:sid-20181011-slim

  # Use a snapshot known to work (see http://snapshot.debian.org/#Usage)
  ENV DEBIAN_SNAPSHOT_DATE "20181030"

If this patch hasn't already gone in via a Fam PR I'll include it in my
testing/next.
