Ah I think this is a super cool idea :)

I might - next week at any rate.

Ummm...what's the difference between these two anyway? Is it possible to
put an end to one of them?

This is perhaps going to need refinement seperate from the general
"Release Summary" anyway - isn't it?

All sounds good to me - I'd love to help out some how with this. Also, I
don't know if anybody's noticed, but I thought the KDE people did a
great job with their release stuff and thought we could learn from them
