A debian-installer build for stretch-proposed-updates was made, which
may not get merged into stretch before the next point release. For the
time being:


I've successfully tested version "20170615+deb9u5+b3", as well as at

release, and I'll do at least some minimal testing of the next point
release on armhf before pushing it to stretch so this doesn't happen
