Missing "." at the end, but otherwise I think it's a big improvement.

Note that all releases before Etch already correctly list the date of the 
r0 release, it was only changed for Etch and Lenny.

Can you make it so that the last sentence is only displayed if there 
actually are point releases? IIRC that should be possible. Something like 
that is already done in releases/lenny/errata.wml.
