I agree that using "Release overview" might be better, or perhaps simply 
"Releases" since the page's title is "Debian releases".

(Just for the record, in case someone is considering it, "Release infos" would 
not be a valid link text, as "info" / "information" is an uncountable noun 
without a plural form.)

Yes, it's a good idea to mention that, perhaps borrowing wording from the 
Security FAQ: http://www.debian.org/security/faq#lifespan
