If at all humanly possible, please do one of two things with this kind
of information, which is important enough for release notes.  In order
of preference:

1.  Edit the Docs/Beats for the appropriate area -- in this case the
DevelTools beat -- or contact the Beats maintainer with the appropriate
info.  Don't worry about style nitpicking, we take care of that in
editorial sessions.

2.  Use the '*docs*' keyword in your commit message -- a neat trick
we've had in effect for about a year that alerts the Docs team to
information that is relnotes-worthy.

We are grabbing this information for the Beats since they're going to
XML for translation today to make test2 release.  Thanks!
