Lenny won't have security support after squeeze + one year, which means
February 2012.  (Unless somebody steps up and does the work.)  It probably
won't disappear until Wheezy is released, which is not in a year; but I'd
advise against using it unless it's in a closed environment.

If upgrades to squeeze aren't smooth we'd be interested in hearing why that is.

Kind regards,
