that URL is not at all stable, it will expire in about a week, and it does not represent an official release, itâs just an automatic build of the current head
if the stable GIT branch.
This URL is stable
It is *usually* safe to use any build that passes all of the tests (i.e. the green rows), but most of these are pre-releases and not really recommended for production use because there are some things that cannot be tested in an
automated way. Actual releases are tested in production on a real pool for at least 3 days (usually more) before they are put into our repos and/or our download page.

Thanks for the link to your build farm, those the tarball binaries are almost perfect!
How stable is the URL to that tarball? I'm actually building a docker image which has to include condor clients, and I'm curious if I can just put that URL in the Dockerfile that builds the image, or if I should stash the tarball someplace
and avoid using the URL into your build farm. Any ETA on the official Debian 9 build?

Does anyone have prebuilt Debian 9 binaries?
You can grab prebuilt binaries of HTCondor for Debian 9 from our official build farm here at UW-Madison (called "BaTLab" for build and test lab). Note these binaries will just be in tarball form; the work to package a DEB file for Debian 9 isn't done yet.
Once it is, there will be a Debian 9 repository etc as usual on
To grab Debian 9 binaries, the build at this URL are the binaries used for the HTCondor v8.6.10 release:
On this web page, on the left side column, you will see "download results" and a bunch of platforms... click on "x86_64_Debian9" (direct url is
http://tinyurl.com/ycwl7dek ) and that will give you results.tar.gz. Inside this compressed tarball you want the file public/condor-8.6.10-x86_64_Debian9-stripped.tar.gz.
