The Jessie release got a bit Stretch'ed


As already officially announced, we have now released Debian 8,

There are too many people who should be thanked for their
work on getting us to this point to list them all individually, and we
would be sure to miss some.  Nevertheless, we would like to particularly
thank the installer team, the buildd and ftp teams, the CD team, the
publicity team, the webmasters, the Release Notes editors, porters and
all the package maintainers and translators who have contributed to
making Jessie a great release of which we should all be proud.

First point release

As was the case for Wheezy, we anticipate that the first point release
for Jessie will likely occur in approximately a month's time. That has
yet to be finalised, but we hope to be able to confirm the plans soon.

Please co-ordinate fixes which you would like to see included in the
point release with the Stable Release Team via a "pu" bug against the
release.debian.org pseudopackage, including a debdiff of the current and
proposed source packages.


The release of Jessie also means that you can now upload to unstable
those changes you've been holding off during the freeze.  Please do not
rush to upload everything all at once, in order to reduce load on the
buildds etc.  Automatic testing migration is not yet re-enabled, but
that will happen during the next day or so.

As with jessie, we would ask that you co-ordinate particularly large
transitions or changes; if your plans involve major toolchain changes or
otherwise have the potential to cause problems in unstable for a long
time (e.g. due to FTBFS issues), please talk to us.  We know that there
are a large number of changes which have been waiting for the release to
happen and we're keen not to stand in the way of those but would also
like to avoid a number of larger transitions becoming entangled.

That's it for now; it is time for the celebrations to begin, whether at
a Release Party[PARTY] or otherwise. :-)

Niels, Adam, and your Debian Jessie Release Team
