Indeed, for people who already know where to look. Why not put a small blurb
in the main webpage www.debian.org/releases/woody/. Basically one paragraph
as described in the debianplanet.org description. Clearly anyone ALREADY
familiar with debian will be well-aware of the release status however
the average user or newcomer will not grasp the signficance of 
the phrases 'Release-critical bugs' etc or will S/he be likely to 
click on debian-devel-announce mailing list.
