Hmm, the journals do a pretty good job then. I understand that we have
many target audiences and you can broaden the release notes as much as
you want. But still there are usually only a handful of "big things" per
release which the news sites pick up, and mostly the chosen features
among the news sites are pretty congruent. And this core
features/changes (say the 5% of changes that interests 95% of the usersm
something like Plymouth or PackageKit comes to my mind for the last
releases) would be a good starter, maybe even to tease people to read
