Only problem with that approach:  How do we go back in time to ensure
that something worked before?  Here's what I would suggest you do:

1. Establish the dates when John J. McDonough did a previous import of
release notes beats from the wiki into the git release-notes
repository, using the change history there.

2. Get the wiki page content from the appropriate revision of one or
more of the imported pages.

You should be able to use those to validate.  It would probably also
be a good idea to set up a semi-permanent page for testing, watching
for regressions, etc.
