Sure it is.  Today.

Next month, though, if all goes as planned, stable will point to
woody.  potato will, of course, still point to potato.

Personally, I use release status (unstable/testing/stable) in my
sources.list.  However, if you want to be more sure of what you're
getting or if you want to continue running potato for a while after
woody's release, you should consider using release names (sid/woody/
potato) instead.
