woody is *released*. No further changes to it will be made, except
security fixes, and fixing very grave bugs.

Woody had a very long 'beta' testing period - the release was planned
much earlier but got delayed. So I would expect even more bugs got fixes
than usual.

Going from potato to woody *is* a major upgrade, sure. Going from 3.0 to
3.0r1 will be very minor, probably on the same level as applying the
security upgrades. Besides, 3.0r1 will be just security upgrades and a
very small number of additional fixes, so waiting for 3.0r1 is probably
not worth it.

If you have language problems, I hope you noticed that most debian pages
are available in many different languages, so it should really be clear.
