So how about a release note that describes the situation completely,
and explains the choice that german users have?

I'm looking for a good solution here that can answer everyone's
concerns, rather than trying to identify who is more ludicrous.  I
agree that an apology isn't necessary, but *some* kind of advice,
given that sarge will be *removing* support for a large class of
users, does seem relevant, and does warrant some kind of mention in
the release notes to explain the situation.
