Bug#780201: new codename needed for oldstable (due to squeeze-lts) when stable becomes oldstable

package: ftp.debian.org
x-debbugs-cc: debian-lts@lists.debian.org, debian-release@lists.debian.org


when jessie will be released, wheezy will become oldstable and we'll need a 
new alias for squeeze, as various tools internally work with aliases. (The 
security tracker comes to my mind, but also the Release files it seems. And 
probably more.)

I believe it's the ftp teams duty / joy to decide this name and would like to 
ask you to do soon, so that various places can be prepared for the joyful day 
we release jessie.

Current suggestions I've heard (and liked) are "oldoldstable" and 

I *dislike* "obsoletestable" and "stalestable" as they are either wrong 
(squeeze is not obsolete) or carry a bad connotation.
