there has been *plenty* of warning. it was totally clear that jessie would
not be supported one year after the release of stretch as this is how it
has been for the last 20 years. 

also, https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/ since more than a year explained that
jessie LTS would not support arm64, so again, plenty of warning.

if your company is interested in having LTS support for arm64, have you
considered sponsoring the work?
