Yes, I read this in the instructions for creating a release. I do think 
that the 'M' is there because I did not commit the changes I had made to 
releaseSummary.xml. I didn't want to do that because I felt it was 
rather unfinished (see the mail I sent about the feature descriptions).

On a related note: Should releaseSummary.xml be committed to trunk, and 
then merged to 10.4? In a way this seems unnecessary, since its content 
will only ever be needed on a specific branch, but the 10.3 content is 
currently found on trunk, so I guess it has been committed to trunk in 
the past...

Also: The release instructions seem to suggest that the CHANGES file was 
deprecated in 10.3, and that I shouldn't try to create it for 10.4. Is 
that understanding correct?
