I think a better strategy would be to define release notes in yaml in each
repository and then
have the website builder scrape those release notes. Merging them all into
a single file is not
working and clearly more work than should be required.

    - note: Added perfect forwarding support.
      type: normal
        - type: trac
          id: 13345
        - type: github-issue
          id: 21
        - type: github-pr
          id: 42
    - note: Removed public interface.
      type: breaking
    - note: Deprecated such-and-such.
      type: deprecation

We could have a Cebrerus schema validator file (in boostorg/website) for
the release note language.
The website build could fail (optionally) if any of the release notes did
not meet the validator.
