Making Debian 9 supported first is better since you get build env

Bigtop is also built for some users to create customized distribution, so
you can definitely try to tweak component versions. However it requires
more understanding of the Hadoop  ecosystem. For example:

Compatibility. e.g. Tez+Hive, Hadoop+HBase
Layout of upstream artifacts. e.g. jars
Features and patches. Sometimes you need to do backport yourself.
