Sorry I missed that reply :-(

I could wrap up a package for the current check-mk-agent fixing a few
minor bugs and updating to the latest version until tomorrow. I don't
feel confident at all packaging the server part, because upstream
support for that is rather bad and I honestly don't know anyone who is
not using check_mk inside OMD.

So I see three options:
a) check_mk and check_mk_agent are not released in Jessie

b) check_mk_agent is split into a seperate source package and migrates
to Jessie in time, the server parts are not released in Jessie

c) someone else updates both server and agent in time for Jessie

I can help with b), but I need a bit of help. First of all I'm not a DD,
just a DM. So I need a sponsor for uploading. Also I have no idea how to
take over a binary package in a new source package. I could not find a
lot of documentation about that. I guess one needs to rebuild the old
source package first, dropping the binary packages for the agent?

Best Regards,
