Perfect. Lets make sure that starting from Bigtop 0.9.0
Debian is always supported. Here's what needs to
   0. You need to tell us what version(s) of Debian
   Bigtop should be targeting.
   1. We need to make sure that our Puppet code
    for toolchain creation and deployment runs
    on Debian.
    2. We need to start baking official Bigtop build
    Docker images and start doing the builds.

If this seems reasonable -- feel free to file JIRAs,
let me know your jira ID and I will assign them
to you for the 0.9.0 time frame.

On #2 we would need to also have an official
Debian docker image somehow. Looking at
it seems that Debian is maintained there, so perhaps
all we need to do is just take care of #1.

Yup. If you could start filing those JIRAs that would
be very much appreciated.

Good call! I filed:

Are you saying that Debian *inside* of a Docker container
is not quite ready? We don't need to run those containers
under Debian, but we need Debian to function within
the container.
