Hi Florian,
Debian supports each stable release for a set time(about a year after
release). The current stable is Sarge. Woody is 'oldstable' and soon it
will have no 'official' status(not experimental,unstable,testing,stable
or oldstable). As you noted, Debian keep historical copies of its stable
releases at archive.debian.org. This is where you will find anything
that is older than 'stable'(eg. bo,hamm,woody,etc.).

After Woody, non-US was removed as it was not needed anymore. As for
maintaining non-us repositories (for woody or any thing older), this has
stopped. As for supporting security fixes for woody, this too has
stopped. Anyone wanting security support for woody can find it through
the FLOSS community(commercial or otherwise) or any other desired
commercial solution.
