Yes, I've submitted quite a few PRs related to porting to Debian, they 
all got accepted (mostly related to bash not being the default /bin/sh 
in Debian), just as some Makefile changes due to different Debian paths 
(like systemd).

We've got running VZ7 on stock Debian Jessie (systemd, etc) but without 
Parallels tools (as those need custom libvirt patches to version which 
is not in Debian Stable). Normal containers with libvzctl+vzctl are 
working perfectly fine, we've got a few servers in prod on VZ7 for 
internal use.

Actually that might be the #1 issue with current Debian Stable - it uses 
older libvirt 1.2.9 and VZ team would have to recompile their own and 
roll it to all users... otherwise no parallels+VMs tools.

Best Regards,
