Odoo 9 stable repository with security updates?

I am running Odoo Community 9 on a Debian 8 server. I have installed using the "nightly build" APT repository at


This generates a new package update every day, and I don't understand what is changing, as I thought 9.0 was a stable release. I am looking to minimise maintenance of the Odoo server but don't wish to "pin" the Debian package as that will miss out on security updates to the Odoo software.

Is there an alternative Debian APT repository which contains a release of Odoo 9 which is only updated for security patches, in the same vein as Debian's stable release?

Every active release of Odoo - 7,8,9, MASTER and all the SAAS versions is being built several times a day as bug fixes (and security updates) are made.

http://runbot.odoo.com/ can tell you which fix(es) are being applied to the stable build.

I don't know of a build that is only updated for security patches.

I think it would be really important to have a more stable update path for Odoo 9, also it's quite confusing that the official download site mentions that "Odoo 9" is stable and the recommended version, but links to nightly builds (?!).

So I've opened an issue at


in the hope this will be addressed, best with a stable or testing repository for Debian, RPM and Arch based Linux distros...,-)

Ray is spot on here. You're best bet is to either pin the updates, alternatively use the github repository instead or just apply the new latest version once a month and test on a dev server beforehand. Odoo and OpenERP has always been this way.
