Apologies for cross-posting but I'd like to try to tie together some 
ideas that have been floating around the fab and docs lists.

Is it feasible to start looking at the Release Notes / Release Summary 
and some issues with timely production of those, mentioned in FDSCo 
meeting[2] today, through the spectacles of Mr Spaleta's post [1] and 
his rainbow diagram[3]?

There seems to be a good cross-section of FP subprojects involved in a 
production of release notes and summaries, all of which could benefit 
from the better co-ordination of the effort:

  * Maintainers/Packagers
  * Testers/Bug Triagers
  * Beats and Docs writers / Translators
  * Artists
  * Marketing

Being inventive (not!), I thought something like RelNotes SIG, acting as 
an umbrella for all of the * above might achieve this better co-ordination.

Immediate and a very visible benefit would be accurate Release Notes 
produced on time throughout the dev-cycle (and Rahul and others relieved 
of beyond-human effort during the last 48 hrs before the mirrors open 
every 6-7 months).

The other, less visible benefit, is the possibility (there was a bit of 
a talk about it within docs team, too) to use this road to attract new 
contributors and get them started on smaller, less intimidating pieces 
of the project.

Is there anything fundamentally wrong with this?

Cheers, Vladimir
