The page still contains at least two references to woody. See attached
proposed patch.

Is that page intended to be used as a template while etch is still
"testing", or after the etch release when people are upgrading from
oldstable to stable?  If the latter, then it should also be updated to
refer to the latest stable release notes, rather than
http://www.debian.org/releases/testing/releasenotes  (I can see how
one might argue that we no longer need the upgrade reports after etch
is released, but I don't know that I agree.)
