It's this last comment that I was expecting to hear from you. Thanks for
confirming. Then indeed, I think mentioning it in the release-notes is
the best solution for users of lilo.

Regarding the time-line, I suggest to get lilo removed well before the
transition freeze, so that it is well gone during the full period of the
bullseye freeze.
