    5  * Release [wiki:hct service advisory] warning members that we will be upgrading and rebooting during off hours (any time other than 9:00 am to 9:00 pm America/New_York monday - friday). Proposed text:
     5It hasn't hit the apt repos yet (10:48 pm America/New_York) however, I have installed on octavia, floriberto and chavez via [https://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/pool/main/l/linux/linux-image-4.9.0-0.bpo.5-amd64_4.9.65-3+deb9u2~bpo8+1_amd64.deb direct download].
