I see these templates are defined in `website/feed/ext.qbk`. How or when
is that source being pulled into the documentation ? (That's presumably
what you are referring to as "release notes infrastructure" ?)

As I mentioned in a prior reply in this thread, I'd really like to be
able to use such features in my projects' own documentation, i.e. as
part of a regular documentation build, which has no notion of the above
`website` code. But that would only work if such templates would become
part of `quickbook` itself, rather than being integrated into a separate
boost module such as `website`.
(Of course, in this particular case the templates are so simple I can
just clone them into my own doc infrastructure.)
