Yeah, I don’t think it was always like that.  Stripping it down to just the ones that actually
have release notes make them much more usable, based upon my experiments.  Also, highlighting
the ones marked  as incompatible (in both of them) but lacking notes has been extremely helpful
in not getting surprised.

Also, one of the big problems was that YARN didn’t have a release notes field, so it used
to print the description. I got the INFRA team to fix that forever ago, but I don’t think
anyone noticed.
