Hi cypherpunks. Yup, new packages are initially only available on Sid...

https://packages.debian.org/sid/nyx

It takes months before Sid packages are added to debian stable. I don't have any control over this - Debian moves slowly. ;P

Did you have any other questions?

Maybe it would be good to mention this in the Debian section of the page?
https://nyx.torproject.org/#download

and maybe add it to the deb.tpo repo in the meantime?

Good idea. I'll add a note for Debian and Ubuntu in a bit (this has caused confusion for a few people).

As for adding this to deb.tpo I wouldn't mind but that's up to our deb's maintainer (Dererk). This has been suggested a few times so I'll give him another quick nudge.

Replying to atagar:

For deb.tpo, see also #20643 for a thing I really wish somebody would do before we start adding new things to it. It sounded like irl was convincible to help.

Summary: nyx package not in debian stretchNyx unavailable on deb.torproject.org

Pushed an addition to our FAQ and download page to explain this...

Renaming this ticket to concern Nyx on deb.tpo since that's the only part remaining. I emailed Dererk. Lets see what his thoughts are.
