Moving Ross' suggestion over from task FOR-454 ...

I would like to make a suggestion for this issue which will save us time on future releases.

If we add an attribute to the action element in skinconfig called "announce" with a value
of true or false (default to false) we can auto generate the announcement of new features..

Furthermore, if we add an element "upgrade" which contains a textual description of how to
upgrade from the previous version we can generate the upgrade document too. 

These documents, being auto generated would build during the developmentof the project making
it easier for someone to return to the project after a while away. 

I would therefore suggest that in fixing this issue for the 0.7 release we focus on adding
this information to status.xml and writing the necessary stylesheets. Remember we only need
to produce XDoc as Forrest will give us a neat text version of the document.

By adding some attributes to the "actions" in status.xml we would be able to use certain entries
for the announcement text.
