Note that the OSGeo-Live 10.5 cycle overlaps the key release dates for 
the next Debian stable release:

  [2016-Nov-05] Transition freeze
  [2016-Dec-05] Mandatory 10-day migrations
  [2017-Jan-05] Soft freeze (no new packages, no re-entry, 10-day 
  [2017-Feb-05] Full freeze

This may or may not be a good thing.

 From the Soft freeze date packages for Debian will likely be uploaded to 
experimental if they are not intended for inclusion in stretch.

Kind Regards,
