2.19.3 needs release notes. They should include a large warning saying, "This
release will eat your babies for breakfast."

Hopefully the relnote keyword should help us with this.

Summary: Release Notes for 2.19.3 → Release Notes for 2.20
Actually, what technically needs release notes is 2.20. We need to have at least
*something* by the time we hit rc1. 2.19.3 doesn't technically need release
notes, it just needs a little warning that this release is hazardous to your
health to be pasted all over the place.

Attached patch 2.20 Release Notes, v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
OK, here's my first stab at the 2.20 Release Notes!

I've asked Colin to review them (since he's a docs guy), but really anybody can

take a stab at a review. Let me know if there's anything that I've left out, or

anything that should be different!

2.20 Release Notes, v1

I would explain why running sanitycheck.cgi before upgrading. Something like
"fix all warnings before upgrading or checksetup.pl may behave incorrectly".

Did you already mentioned in a previous release that %::FORM and %::MFORM are
dead? See bug 225818.


The patch looks good to me.
+- You can tell Bugzilla to mark certain comments in a different
+  color by adding "&mark=1,2,3" to the end of the show_bug.cgi URL,
+  where "1,2,3" means "highlight comment 1, comment 2, and comment 3."

you can also specify a range .. &mark=1,2,5-7
looks good to me, with the caveats mentioned by others already.

Is there a way to disable QA contact on the enter bug page?

  OK, added a link to it in two places. (It's long, so it's easier just to link
to that attachment.)

  OK, done. :-)

  Ahh, awesome, right! :-) I've added a note about that, also.

  Added. :-)

  Not that I know of, other than disabling QA Contact or editing the templates.



  OK, so unless there are some other review comments, I figure that this is
pretty much the version that will go into 2.20rc1, yes?
