Bug#883300: [www.debian.org] improve the list of releases (webwml/english/releases/index.wml)

Package: www.debian.org
User: www.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertag: content
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Hello all
Several improvements for the list of releases that is currently in
www.debian.org/releases (source webwml/english/releases/index.wml) have
been suggested in the debian-www mailing list: [1],[2]. Filing a bug so
they don't get lost:

* Specify the oldstable and old-oldstable releases in the list
(currently we just mark testing, stable, and all the rest as "obsolete
stable release"). Proposal diff attached, not sure about the wording of
the term "oldoldstable" or if using those technical terms at all.

* Maybe a table would be a better way to structure the list, we
could take some inspiration from Ubuntu or other distros and list the
dates. E.g. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
