Bruce - The excellent work that both you and Robert do is a slightly
different view to what I had in mind - I agree they are all aspects of
the same information. I'm posting a first output of this now, so we can
discuss whether such a thing is useful, and or whether it can ever be
all of useful/accurate/timely.

I'll happily add this to the HEAD of release.sgml, though lets agree the
content/direction first, before I spend time on a more formal
publication mechanism.

Best Regards, Simon Riggs
