So the announcement should probably read something like:
We recommend that you upgrade your systems to at least Debian 7 "Wheezy" and then to the current Debian 8 stable release "Jessie" if you can.
Instructions to upgrade from Squeeze to Wheezy can be found at


Also the info at the above link is rather sparse. "Recommendations for upgrading from Squeeze LTS to Wheezy LTS"
Should there not also be a link to the old Squeeze to Wheezy upgrade instructions?
There were several gotcha's if I remember.
