I installed the certbot package from jessie-backports.

Initial cert generation went perfectly,  but then the simulated renewal
with "certbot renew --dry-run" seems to be quite fragile due to fscked
DNS on their staging server.

Given that, I have to decide how often to run the cronjob with the real
renewal.  Do you (anyone reading this) know how close the cert must be
to expiration for certbot to try renewing it?
