This approach would work fine if I were generating Release Notes the old 
way: as a follow-on job after actually vetting the release. However, we 
have decided that we want to bundle Release Notes with the release 
candidates themselves. That means I have to amend this list each time I 
build a release candidate. I was looking for a solution which would make 
it easy to sweep up the incremental slug of bug fixes which go into 
successive candidates.

Ah dear. There seems to be some controversy about the contents of that 
field. I'm reluctant to touch it until we reach consensus about its meaning.
