It's not my place to decide whether we want to ship packaged release notes
or not. But I think the world has changed and almost no one now cares about
packaged release notes. The internet is today in your pocket and the notes
are likely to be outdated the day we release them. So if I were to decide
this, I'd be inclined to remove this criterion completely.
Of course, Adam's or Matthew's proposal does no harm, so +1 to any of
those, if you want to go forward with it.
I think a slightly tweaked version of Matt's text is good, as it
doesn't require that we have release notes at all, only that if we *do*
have them anywhere, they not be outdated.
