Re: Re: Removal of Wheezy and Jessie (except LTS) from mirrors



It would be useful if there were information somewhere on the following for Debian Jessie LTS architectures:


  1. What should we be using as our source.list file?
  2. Which of the jessie repositories that existed until mid-March have now gone? (from a release that is supposed to still have some support for another year)
  3. What happens / happened to packages where the latest version was in those repositories? (in particular packages that were from the “deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main” line or equivalent on other mirrors)


It does seem a little unfair to EOL and delete repositories from a release that is supposed to be LTS with virtually no notice it was happening.


And just saying “we’re removing this stuff”, without giving any guidance on what LTS users should / need to do is rather unhelpful.


OK, I am a little late to pick up on this, but I’m sure there are other people still running some Jessie systems who only run update commands on them every month or so.
