Just providing links to project-specific release notes is not enough,
IMO. I would prefer aggregated release notes to be readable in one
place, even if they are collected from project-specific sources.
Although I don't see much problem with the current setup as well.

In any case, that is a completely different piece of work from what
Daniel have done.
