Ddollar apt and multi buildpacks expire on 1/1/2017

Issue

On 1/1/2017 two popular buildpacks authored by David Dollar (ddollar) -- heroku-buildpack-apt and heroku-buildpack-multi -- are set to expire, which means new builds using these buildpacks will fail.

Resolution

Apt buildpack - github

This buildpack is used for installing packages from apt. As a replacement we suggest you use Herokus apt buildpack.

Multi buildpack - github

This buildpack is used for setting multiple buildpacks on an app. It is no longer necessary, as Heroku has native support for multiple buildpacks.
