My point was is that we had nothing in writing that serves as what 
should be done. Every release has its holes of things we want to fix 
(now or later) -- my point is only that this is something that this is 
ambiguous presently due to not being explicitly documented.

We should be taking personal preference into account by way of lazy 
consensus. I do not believe everyone is in agreement given that I have 
made now 3 variants of a 1.5.1 CHANGES file in cutting RCs. I'll start 
another thread because I do not want another release candidate to be 
tanked over this.
