Me too.  I can't think of a good reason to make choosing between user
friendly release notes and the exhaustive list from jira an XOR.  The only
argument that slightly concerned me was Christophers predicition of a huge
changes file (but it would compress nicely).  I think thats a bridge we
could cross later and make decisions about like ageing off older data.  We
do not need to make decisions about that now.
