Do you know if there is some similar build service but with Testing support? I found other services in OBS documentation but I didn't find this exact information.
$ cd /etc/fonts/infinality.d/
# rm $(ls /usr/share/fontconfig/infinality.avail/fonts-settings/)
# fc-cache -f
$ fc-cache -f
But in Jessie it uses old libraries to compile, and as dependencies it could need with libraries that aren't in Testing anymore (for example freetype from Jessie needs an old libpng that is still in Stretch, but I don't know if it will be removed soon, and maybe old libraries means slower, less optimized binaries).

New fontconfig-infinality with fixes (out of the box result should looks fine now).

The only settings to change are the regular ones (hinting style, subpixel hinting, etc.) that can be modified in the desktop environment settings panel (or via ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf file).
I found that using "full" hinting now doesn't make the fonts looks ugly, but instead they looks a bit like when I used the Infinality style.
If you want and if you can, try to remove all freetype-Infinality packages you have installed (if you want the fontconfig-infinality also) and try the new vanilla FreeType.
It's still not present in Debian, but I compiled it for Stretch/Sid, you can find it here.
You should need to install only the libfreetype6 package, then after install and reboot you can try the 3 hinting styles (slight, medium or full) and see if one of them looks good for you as Infinality does.
I'm courious about your results.
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-hinting-full.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-hinting-full.conf
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings hinting "full"
