I did wonder about adding this particular JIRA.
However, we do provide the samples with the source release, so on
balance I thought it best to add the information.

Yes, but RN are suitable for offline use; it's also not all that easy
to find the list of fixed JIRAs unless you know your way around JIRA.

Speaking of which, I think it might be useful to add some more info to
the release notes, for example as is done in IO [1]

Only has to be added once, but could be very useful for the user.
