security support for lenny / upgrades from lenny to wheezy (was: How to get the stable iso for lenny)

Steve McIntyre:
> We will cease support for Lenny early next year,

Funny that you mention it. We just yesterday discussed whether this news
item is still relevant today:

/ http://www.debian.org/News/2009/20090729
| Since Debian's last release happened on Feb. 14th 2009, there will
| only be approximately a one year period until its next release,
| Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 (codenamed Squeeze). This will be a one-time
| exception to the two-year policy in order to get into the new time
| schedule. To accommodate the needs of larger organisations and other
| users with a long upgrade process, the Debian project commits to
| provide the possibility to skip the upcoming release and do a
| skip-upgrade straight from Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (Lenny) to Debian
| GNU/Linux 7.0 (not yet codenamed).

I argued that upgrading from 5.0 to 7.0 will not actually be supported
(and hence, lenny will not be supported for longer than one year after
squeeze release) because 6.0 wasn't released ahead of time. Did I get
things right?

When standing at the top of beachy head I find the rocks below very
[Agree]   [Disagree]
