Please wait another week with the deactivation of jessie-security. This
ensures that we can still upload the last packages which received
security updates. Ideally the switch to Stretch LTS goes hand in hand
with the deactivation of jessie-security so we have no downtime at all.
I agree with Emilio that (6) should be postponed for a month. Last time
users asked for more time to install security updates from security.d.o
and one month seems like an acceptable grace period to avoid any
