Hi Peter,

I really would like to stop this to go too far off-topic, but:

I'm not really sure how those two relate.  I regularly build all of the
osmoocom code on Debian stable (which is known for its ancient
versions).  So I really don't think we have any dependencies to
something that would not be part of any more or less current
distribution of the last 2-3 years.

So I would think that all of those distributions (source-built or binary
based) are equally well equipped to build and use any of the osmocom
projects on them.
