Migrating common-lisp.net to Debian Stretch

Hi all,

Over the past weeks, I've been working on a migration from our current OS
version to the current stable version as recently released by the Debian
project (Stretch).

While the time hadn't come to migrate earlier, today I found that the
GitLab project released its Stretch packages, meaning that now all the
third-party prerequisites are in place to migrate.

Today I worked to automate the migration and by the end of today, I'm now
able to run an automated migration without manual intervention. I'll leave
a copy of the current machine running for a few days to see if it remains

If all goes well, it's my intent to take common-lisp.net offline for a few
hours coming Saturday (Saturday July 15) in order to run the migration
script on the live system instead of on a backup. Before the upgrade
starts, we'll take a snapshot of the drives and make sure users won't have
access to the system during the migration.

Although I've run through various tests already and will continue to do
more testing over the coming week, the system might have some instabilities
in the days after the migration. When you experience any of those, please
report here or to the admins (admin at common dash lisp dot net).

Thank you for your patience and continued support/use!
