Yes.

No.

It's basically a semi-simplified way of creating an HTML page with the
release notes and saving it with Netscape.  It was more or less a
by-product of automating the INSTALL build.  It's still nothing to get
excited about as you would still have to manually polish the resulting
text file in some ways.

If you want to try it out run gmake HISTORY in doc/src/sgml.  I've also
tried lynx and w3m for HTML to text conversions but their results where
inferior in several ways.

I can't think of anything more particular than just writing it in there
somewhere.
