The result of this was that any packages which are maintained by the Debian-HA-Maintainers team - and which were not ready for migration to testing; were not included in the release of Debian Jessie. This is closely followed by a policy which excludes the aforementioned packages from the Jessie (main) repository permanently.

For more information, one could visit our wiki [1], browse our public repository [2], or check our homepage [3] from time to time for updates (once we start regularly posting there).

There is also the clusterlabs developers list
(http://clusterlabs.org/mailman/listinfo/developers), if you want to CC
development progress reports there.

As I said in IRC, I am looking forward to being able to add Debian to
the list of well supported distros. Please keep up the good work!
