>Debian is also supported since kinetic

Yet the install docs state:

>System Requirements

>We support Ubuntu Linux Xenial Xerus 16.04 on 64-bit (until alpha 6 we supported Trusty Tahr 14.04). These instructions should also work for later Ubuntu as well as Debian Stretch, though these are not actively tested or supported. Fedora 26 also works if you follow alternate instructions, though it is not actively tested or supported. The same goes for Arch Linux.

It is interesting in that the repositories are called 'debian' repositories and then upon examination the repositories are 'ubuntu' repositories.

I am looking for the information as the documentation suggests that Debian installs can be made to work but that same documentation states that those installs are neither tested nor supported.
