Thanks for starting this page.  I transcribed your input from
fedora-devel-list and did the normal editing.  Are any of the folks
working on release notes or Docs in general subscribed to
fedora-devel-list and/or fedora-test-list?  If so, major user-visible
differences should be noted here.

We don't need to note:
* package version changes, unless they're of major importance
* artwork changes, which are likely to be changed or refined further

We do need to note:
* new and visible features
* specific, substantial regressions or functional changes that will
surprise testers
* any user interaction required to activate new features, to encourage
more testing

There are probably other considerations here too.  Use good judgement
and if in doubt, put it in.  It's far easier to edit things out than
to find what we've missed!  Thanks to everyone for helping out.
