 Yes, that used to be my thinking too.

 But this clearly is a 'really have to' situation -- the combination of
versions of software and distribution you wish to use, along with assuring
timely and automatic access to security patches, makes it so.

If there is a version of Salt Stack available from the developers why

 There *are* Ubuntu packages -- or do you mean missing from the Ubuntu<tm>

 I guess that would be a question to ask Ubuntu.  Since you have a (long
term) support arrangement with them, I'm sure they'll be very responsive.

 Less risky - that's demonstrably not true.  If we were both using these
repositories with unattended upgrades enabled, we'd have avoided that whole
kerfuffle from a couple of months ago.
