Incorrect information on http://www.debian.org/volatile/

Hello Debian WWW team,

According to http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/release-notes/ch-whats-new.en.html#stable-updates , debian-volatile has been superseded by squeeze-updates.
The information, added to http://www.debian.org/volatile/ says:


The official archive of debian-volatile is available on the main site volatile.debian.org, but a network of mirrors is active and available.

Please only use either lenny/volatile or squeeze/volatile with
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile squeeze/volatile main contrib non-free

If you want to use the sloppy archive, use the following APT sources:
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile-sloppy main contrib non-free
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile squeeze/volatile-sloppy main contrib non-free

The integration into the main archive is planned and hopefully available for Squeeze.

The highlighted lines (with squeeze in it) are incorrect. If these instructions are followed, apt-get update will fail with a 404 Not Found error. That can be confirmed when looking in http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile/dists/.

Kind regards,
