I’m not happy with that situation either, as it leaves wheezy in a somewhat broken stage. I’ve asked Jean how much effort it would be to re-establish our build containers once. He just poked me to tell that it’s been two reverts in Puppet and that he’s built 2.9.1 for Wheezy now.

Short test with Docker:

$ docker run -ti debian:wheezy bash
root at 5e8e415e8d22:/# apt-get update
root at 5e8e415e8d22:/# apt-get install -y curl apt-transport-https

DIST=$(awk -F"[)(]+" '/VERSION=/ {print $2}' /etc/os-release); \
 echo "deb http://packages.icinga.com/debian icinga-${DIST} main" > \
 echo "deb-src http://packages.icinga.com/debian icinga-${DIST} main" >> \

root at 5e8e415e8d22:/# curl https://packages.icinga.com/icinga.key | apt-key add -

root at 5e8e415e8d22:/# apt-get update
root at 5e8e415e8d22:/# apt-get -y install icinga2
root at 5e8e415e8d22:/# icinga2 --version

That’s the power of Puppet, Docker, Git and Jenkins :)

Keep in mind that future releases of 2.9.x+ won’t be available for Wheezy though.
