That's a good point. There is a pretty comprehensive changelog, but
it's buried in the debian/ subdirectory.
There's always been a release announcement emailed out, but that isn't
included in the tarball.
I'll try to improve our practice here. Proposal: before releasing I
will put release notes into the top ASDF directory. These will be the
same as what goes in the email message. I'll also make sure there's a
copy of the changelog at the top level, with a cross-reference.
Subscribers to ASDF-devel will be urged to review these and suggest
improvements, before the release is made official.
Does this sound like a reasonable process?
