Yes, but not every Debian user follows those lists and posting here is
also a good way for "your users" (D-M users) to be aware of any important
change on the repo. And dropping support for a complete distribution in
one of the most used repositories of Debian is something I consider
important or relevant for this list.

When I first read D-M notice about discontinuation of lenny, I reviewed D-
M lists to find additional information or explanation about the change
but there was no post on this matter or I couldn't find any :-(
In fact, my "rant" is more because of the little information it was
provided that lead many of us to think there wasn't going to be packages
for lenny any more.
