Bug#387921: release-notes: Should note dropping support for GNOME 1

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

GNOME 1 support dropped

With the release of etch, Debian no longer contains packages for
most of the obsolete version 1 release of GNOME.  (Some packages
remain in order to support other Debian packages which have not yet
been updated to GNOME 2.)  If you need the full GNOME 1 install,
you will have to get it from upstream and install it from source.
(GTK1.2 packages remain fully maintained.)
