I think you have to set the flag to '+' to trigger it, right?  At that
point, we can ACK it in a comment and point to where the content went.
Not including the content should definitely get a '-'.

Added now at:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DocsProject/ReleaseNotes/Process#BugzillaFlag

Note that all of these methods of filing a release note are piped into
relnotes fedoraproject org   That is then fed into a mailman list
(fedora-relnotes-content) that is the "firehose of raw release
content".

That is an interesting idea.  We'd have to have a way of identifying
which beat should receive the content; it seems doable.  Best thing to
do with this idea is to file an RFE in bugzilla against the release
notes.
