      Description

      The Debian install instructions (http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-debian/) mention they are for Wheezy (Debian 7) but step 2 implies that other release packages might be available.

      echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian "$(lsb_release -sc)"/mongodb-org/3.0 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-3.0.list
       
      If your Debian installation does not have lsb_release installed, you may install it using sudo apt-get install lsb-release.
      

      Until multiple releases are supported (eg. Jessie via SERVER-18329) the instructions should be more specific to avoid confusion, eg:

      echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian "$(lsb_release -sc)"/mongodb-org/3.0 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-3.0.list
       
      Currently packages are only available for Debian 7 (wheezy).
