Thanks for your reply, Andrei.
Plans for *Squeeze* were later changed (it was delayed), but I have
not seen any announcements referring to any change of plans as far as
support for Lenny was concerned. The plans for Lenny support were
relative to the release date of Wheezy and was not promised as any
concrete (absolute) number of years. Even if your interpretation of
what happened is correct, I don't think that it would be reasonable to
expect that the users were to infer the change of plans for support
for Lenny without an explicit announcement.
