Bug#813662: cdimage.debian.org: weekly builds of live images are stale
I was looking for a live DVD of testing (stretch) and stumbled upon
Its parent directory claims that it contains "Regular builds of testing
/ (what will be Stretch)". Great! Just what I was looking for.
Or so I thought. The time stamps for the images are three and a half
month old (as of writing) and the images have an 8.2.1 version number.
Slightly alarmed, I checked the packages file for one of the images.
Turns out that these images really are Debian 8.2 (aka Jessie).
Bummer for me, but please either update the live images for stretch
weekly as documented or just remove them completely. There are live
images for the latest stable Debian release and those are at 8.3
