> 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
> # 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).
