Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Consider truncating CHANGES.md files on new release branches
Date Tue, 10 Nov 2020 11:37:15 GMT
I thought we had written up a guide before for what goes in the changes
file, but I can't find it at the moment.

For branch 2.3 I am surprised at 0.99 stuff. I would expect:

* 2.0.0
* 2.1.0
* 2.2.0
* 2.3.[0-z]

Because that would be enough that if I was coming from the prior major
release I could see everything that might matter getting to the release.

If we just include 2.3.z changes then I have to go look at each of the
previous minor releases on the release line as well.

We've talked for some time about possibly including release notes / changes
for just those things in each individual release on the website before.
Would adding something like that be sufficient for the use you're thinking
