Since I had done the previous updates for wheezy, I did this one for jessie
since it's now LTS. The update is ready, I'm just waiting for the stretch update
so that we don't end with a higher version in jessie if that gets delayed. I
will push the changes to the jessie branch when I upload it.

For future updates, if you want to prepare them that would be fine. If you also
want to test and release them that's cool too. The final step is to announce
them (for which you need to grab a DLA number). I can explain you the steps to
do that, or again I or someone from the team could do it, as you prefer.
