Modify relnotes-gen.py to list "Release Notes" separately from "Other Issues Fixed", and other
improvements
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-7723
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7723
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.20.204.0, 0.23.0
            Reporter: Matt Foley


The current tool for generating release notes, relnotes-gen.py, describes all the Jiras fixed
in the release.  Jiras with non-empty "Release Note" field show the release note, others show
the Description field.  They are sorted in reverse-numerical order.  I propose the following
changes:

# List the jiras with Release Notes first.  These are usually the larger or incompatible changes
that most readers will care about most.  Then list the other jiras with their descriptions.
# Sort in forward numerical order.
# Limit description lengths to 500 characters, but print the full Release Notes for any jira
that has them.
# Generate lists of jiras by combining info from the Jira database (Fixed jiras with Fixed
Version of X.Y.Z release) and the CHANGES.txt file (additions since the last release).  This
will accomodate jiras that have been fixed in the current new release, but can't be marked
Resolved due to being pending on other branch(es).
