SSSD was approved for a standing Micro Release Exception on January
8th, meaning that it's now on the list of packages that Ubuntu can
opt to upgrade within a stable release. My understanding is that there
are plans to backport SSSD 1.8 at least to the currently-supported
Ubuntu releases, though Timo will have to confirm that for me (I'm only
going from hearsay).
