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?
