I'd definitely agree with this. I, as a user, expected a formal notice
of end of support, rather than a quiet whimper into support end. Finding
out LTS ended officially 3 days ago after-the-fact is.. unpleasant.
The wiki still states "Debian 6 “Squeeze” until February 2016", which
means I expected a fixed date to be announced soon, rather than just
hearing "eh, done now" sentiments on a mailing list.
Whoops, I always thought that the date was Februar 6, so that was what
we've used in our internal communication, so we've only got a very small
amount of software left running on the "mercy" level.
Given the phrase used on the wiki, I agree, support should be extended
through the end of February.
