I know that I have always read the release notes for Fedora ever since I
started using it regularly (FC5 I believe), but I have also been
following the release notes for Gnome and also KDE 4 when it came out.
And I have to say, maybe it's just me, but I was far more "wowed" and
"awed" by the Gnome & KDE release notes than the Fedora ones.  I still
got what I wanted from the Fedora ones, but the Gnome & KDE ones really
gave me that desire to try them out.

Maybe we can take some lessons from them?  Also, I think they tend to be
more of "release announcements" rather than "release notes", if such a
distinction can be made.  They tend not to include much information such
as known issues, unless buried deeper or linked away, which is something
I think we can go for or benefit from as well.
