I am currently facing a very exciting problem.
According to https://packages.icinga.com/ubuntu/ Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) is supported. I like it, I have used it so far.
The more current version 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) does not.
I don’t like that, because 19.04 is currently EOL and there are no more current packages.
A test installation fails:

Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) will be the upcoming stable and even an LTS version.
But it is not officially available yet.
So I currently have no way to roll out an Icinga installation on a 19.0x release.
Are there any plans to officially support 19.10 or do I have to wait until there are packages for 20.04?
At the moment I can’t do installations on customer systems that use a 19.0x release. (And until there is an official release for 20.04, there may be a few months left, we all know corporations …)
