I was trying to separate out changes that didn't actually affect the
code from the actual software bug fixes/enhancments. I take your point
though and I will fix it in the branch so that if a new RC is
required, then it will be fixed.

I look at re-doing the changes.xml - since the site isn't part of the
release and I will be copying the new 2.6 elements over to the trunk's
changes.xml if/when the 2.6 release goes out.
