Yes, that's something I can definitively do. I think we should also 
adjust the versioning in JIRA. Currently there are a lot of versions 
that seem to be the module versions (probably imported from the old 
project structure). I think it would be good to rename those so that the 
module name is part of the version (e.g. odfdom-0.8.8). Another option 
would be to use the umbrella version in JIRA only (currently 
0.5-incubating and the upcoming 0.6-incubating).

For the format of the release notes I think it would be nice to include 
the changes for all releases and always attach the newest version at the 
top. I like the way the Lucene project is doing this:

They also have one wiki page per release that contains the release 
announcement as well as any errata to the release notes (see e.g.

As we are using Maven we could also use the Maven changes plugin but I think 
nothing beats a txt file.

If everybody is ok with this I'd like to restructure our changes.txt to 
something similar to what Lucene is doing and create two wiki pages for 
the last release and the upcoming release.
