First of all thanks for all the feedback and the review from Justin B
Rye and victory. I like the new draft. Judging from Moritz' response
there doesn't seem to be much interest in releasing the announcement on
two different mailing lists at the same day. I'm going to assume now
that the current draft is acceptable and that we (the LTS team) should
make the announcement this Saturday (because of "rather a few days
earlier") and the Security Team will just link to our announcement later.

I also intend to contact the Publicity Team very soon and to use the
current draft as the basis for full news coverage on debian.org.
