Sorry I arrived late in this discussion.  I did a final edit of the
Releases/9/Alpha/ReleaseNotes this morning.  Had you already merged in
your changes?  Your namespace draft and the one I edited appear at a
glance to be the same.

We could, but let's also let folks do that and blog about it directly.
I don't want to get into the habit of providing too many screenshots for
the release notes.  A little bit is good marketing value, but a highly
significant part of our userbase cares more about a correct feature list
first and identification of major improvements/changes.

We can continue to edit it from here, that is one reason we use the wiki
for Alpha and Beta release notes.
