(Mainly because most opened bugs against RN are applicable to both lenny and squeeze

Indeed, that is fixable.

In short, not for some weeks.

As said to Andrei, first apply fixed in bts, then we can branch for

While I started the preliminary work for squeeze release-notes in april,
my daily work has been very time and energy-consuming, so I did less
for Debian.

What is available as of now: 
* a TODO list / reminders at http://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseNotes
* a set of tools to generated lenny-to-squeeze NEWS.debian diff over the
  archive, to be used as an input to release-notes
* Franklin tools, to diff package status between lenny and squeeze.

Franklin, I know you have many other tools not publicly advertised yet.
It would be interesting to add them to

More on TODO:
* Test the current release-notes against current status of lenny and
squeeze (see
as well)
