I'd recommend staying on 1.8; while 1.10 will be supported through the end of 2017, 1.8 is an LTS release, and a reasonable target for e.g third-party extensions to continue to build on top of. Switching this close to FF seems risky for minor benefit. 

Thanks for the input. It makes sense to stay at 1.8 since it's an LTS.  In fact 1.8 is supported further out than 1.10 according to the chart at https://www.djangoproject.com/download/.

Shipping 1.10 in Debian makes sense, since we're hoping to be able to include 1.11 LTS in stretch.
