Hi Paul,

Without funding I won't be able to backport Etcd.
A significant amount of work is required. I estimate that about 20 dependency 
packages need to be backported as well. Frankly I doubt that the effort is 
worth it -- etcd is a statically linked binary so it would work just fine if 
installed straight from "testing" to Jessie (which could be facilitated by 
trivial apt pinning). At least that's how I use etcd on Jessie at the 

All the best,
 Dmitry Smirnov.


Not a lack of belief, but adherence to false knowledge is the enemy of
progress. And certain that we have found everything worth searching for,
we see no point in further search and inquiry. Believing what is
unworthy of belief, believing falsehood as if it were incontrovertible
truth, and sure that we know everything we will ever need to know, we
are worse than ignorant.
