As time passes some of our supported platforms reach their official end of life. Just this week Debian Jessie has [reached that point](https://wiki.debian.org/DebianReleases) and following our [last sync]() we have [disabled](https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/ros_buildfarm_config/pull/118) the Debian Jessie builds.

Like all of our EOL'd distros we will continue to host the existing ROS packages for the EOL'd distros however we will not be building updated packages for them. You can continue to use the existing packages and of course it will still work from source.

If there are any super critical issues please follow up in [this thread](https://discourse.ros.org/t/preparing-for-kinetic-sync-2018-06-06/5034/4) for discussing workarounds. 

As soon as we've verified that turning off the packaging on the buildfarm has successfully settled down we will also [disable bloom generation for the EOL distros](https://github.com/ros/rosdistro/pull/18151) as well. When we disabled Jessie we also noticed that Fedora 23 and 24 were being generated and will also disable them as they're past [their EOL](https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/End_of_life) too.
