Thanks for the heads up.  RC1 will *not* support Debian Jessie due to this
change, but we will try to make R14 support Debian Jessie as of its

This is incidentally why I don't like tracking unstable distros.  I know
many users want to use Jessie (due to the age of the packages in Wheezy)
but it's constantly being broken and we simply don't have the finances to
rebuild the packages over and over and over again. :-(

As an aside, please refrain from uploading any new packages to QuickBuild
at this time.  After the RC1 builds are complete I will be taking it
offline for long-overdue scheduled maintenance lasting one or two days.
