You missed my point. It should contain migration information, advises
about problematic package updates etc. But now it's mostly "package xy
is updated to version 0.x", where this package isn't even in default
install and it's minor release, not causing any problems when updating
from previous one. Not mentioning that package xy is used only by a few
people. And all of them are native speakers or speak English well (they
have to if they use xy).

I propose that core informations would go to XML release notes, and
others would go to the wiki (SIG pages or eg.
Releases/11/ReleaseNotes/AmateurRadio), where they can be translated by
those interested in them.

I think number of new strings in this release is comparable to previous
ones. That's not a problem for me either.
