Subject [Db-derby Wiki] Update of "ReleaseNoteProcess" by RichardHillegas

Dear Wiki user,

  Good release notes are essential for users as they upgrade from one release to the next.
Here's the procedure the Derby team uses to maintain useful release notes:
   * For JIRAs which need a release note, you should turn on the "Release Note Needed" flag
and attach a file called "releaseNote.html".
-  * The template for releaseNote.html will live in tools/release/templates/releaseNote.html.

+  * The template for releaseNote.html lives in tools/release/templates/releaseNote.html.

+  * Before attaching your release note, make sure that the release processes can digest it.
Run the lint tool, !ReleaseNoteReader, on your note as follows: "java org.apache.derbyBuild.!ReleaseNoteReader
RELEASE_NOTE_FILE" where RELEASE_NOTE_FILE is the name of the file which holds your release
   * As you improve the wording of your release note, you simply attach a new version of releaseNote.html.
The release documentation will include the last version of the release note.
  Some additional discussion regarding this process can be found in DERBY-2570.
