The service-runner build functionality uses a jessie docker image to compile dependencies for deploy repositories. Now that production is switching to a Node 4.2 backport we should switch to a jessie image that is using the precise packages we are using in production.
The simplest approach should be to layer on top of the regular jessie image, by
- configuring the Wikimedia repository, and
- running apt-get update & upgrade, followed by an installation of nodejs.
Alternatively, we could build a complete image from scratch using the wikimedia mirror of jessie. Given the large overlap with production I'm not sure that it would be worth the effort. @MoritzMuehlenhoff, @fgiunchedi, @faidon, @mobrovac, @Eevans, @Pchelolo: Any thoughts on this?
