I think it would be most effective if when a significant change is checked
in, the release information is updated with it. That way we don't have to
think months later what that obscure log message meant. Also, it would
give users of snapshot releases an idea of what has happened so far.

I've updated the list I posted up to the 22nd and checked it in. For the
hopefully few remaining additions I think it's OK to just update both
files, unless you want to do the reformatting. (I used a program called
"links" to convert from HTML to text.)
