Well. Looked.

You miss etch, which has an even older 2.0.0, so that needs to be fixed

Now, having talked to the RMs for the various releases:

etch - will get done within two weeks. We need time to prepare and
       coordinate a new stable release.

lenny - it will, together with its reverse dependencies, get removed
        within a day (well, next britney + archive sync run)
        Its unfortunately way too large a code change to sync the new
        version from unstable to lenny.
