If the tracker is being used correctly, shouldn't the complete list of bug fixes
be a query on the tracker for issues that were known in <version-1> and have
been fixed in <version>? The main release notes could link to that query. I
don't know if it needs to be one link per library though - some libraries might
not have many fixes and clicking on a link just to see those would be tedious. A
single link to a big list with issues categorized by library would suffice.
