Squeeze (Debian 6) was initially released on February 6th, 2011 and
its latest update (6.0.1) was released on March 19th, 2011.
I guess my point is that the 6-series of Debian (named Squeeze) was
initially released on February 6th. A specific release like 6.0.0 is
released only once. (I have started to repeat myself.)
I also notice that in the frontpage, the download link in the header
says "Download Debian 6.0" - ref http://www.debian.org/index.en.html
I would say "Debian 6" here to, but since Debian normally don't get
.1 releases it might be OK. (The last Lenny was 5.0.8.)
