Prevent tails-installer in Debian from migrating to stable
The Tails ISO format might change, and we are not sure that our current installer will still be able to install Tails images in T:Contributors documentation years. That’s why we don’t want it to be in Debian stable (unless we want to to talk to the Debian Release team about how this could be updated in stable and analyze what would have happened if we had put tails-installer in Jessie - but we doubt that we want to adopt this solution.)
So, an RC will need to be filed against the package but only once the Stretch freeze has started. This is because an RC bug prevents packages to migrate from unstable to testing and a package which is not in testing cannot have a backport. This is the release schedule for Debian Stretch:
- 2016-11-05: Transition freeze (general freeze of transitions)
- 2017-01-05: “Soft” freeze (no new packages, no re-entry, normal migrations)
- 2017-02-05: Full freeze
So this should happen right after the full freeze.
Putting target version 2.9, but this is just so that I’ll remember around when I need to do this.
