Subject Re: [DISCUSS] CHANGES Documents
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 23:04:42 GMT
I think we should just take the release notes jira generates for X.Y.Z and
prepend them to the CHANGES files with a header saying "Release Notes -
Apache Accumulo - Version X.Y.Z".  This is what was done for 1.4.[1,2,3,4]
and 1.5.0

For example the following link will generate 1.4.4 release notes (can
change it from HTML to text by pressing "Configure release notes").
