I didn't check how it was for Squeeze, only checked Jessie. And there it
was also set "current_initial_release = 8".
Which seems correct since the versioning scheme was changed some day from
"x.0" to "x".
So the webpage code mentioned here might no longer work correctly now.

The "current_initial_release" entity is only used in that ../releases/index
file, to display the mentioned phrases.
So changing it from "9" to "9.0" should be safe.
