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.

plug one hole in the titantic with a bit of tissue paper"
