Others have answered this, but I would like to point out that security
is often neglected in software appliances so I hope you:
Allow your users to perform security updates on their instance.
Notify your users when their instance needs a security update.
Notify your users when their appliance no longer has security support.
Allow your users to upgrade their instance to a newer version of
Debian that has security support.
