Audit our puppet tree for uses of jessie-backports
Closed, ResolvedPublic


jessie-backports is no longer updated and going to be removed from the Debian mirrors, the steps for OpenStack packages were handled via T216497, but there are also uses of jessie-backports outside of WMCS/Openstack. We should audit our puppet tree for such cases (grepping for jessie-backports shows quite a few cases and there's also some more subtles ones e.g. $::lsbdistcodename-backports

There are multiple ways to address those:

  • Often a role is no longer used on jessie at all, so we can simply remove the code entirely
  • If it's still used, the respective package can be imported to our internal repository
