What part of our SP installation guide [1] gave you the impression that
we have SPv3 packages for Debian? I'd need to fix it because we don't
actually have them yet. ;)

Not to my knowledge.

You can track the state of Shibboleth packages in Debian on [2]. This
page shows that all necessary v3 packages, except the SP itself
(shibboleth-sp2), are currently in Debian "experimental". When all
packages are ready in experimental and Ferenc is satisfied with their
state, he'll upload them to Debian "unstable". They will have to endure
some automated scrutiny there for about a week [3] and if all is well
they will be migrated to Debian "testing". They will remain in testing
until the next Debian "stable" release, but backports to stable are
allowed at this stage. This is what I'll take to make official Debian
backports (available in stretch-backports) and SWITCH's own packages for
Debian and Ubuntu.

I can't really give a date for when all of this will be ready, probably
in September.
