+* Adding, removing, or regrouping a diagnostic.
+* Fixing a bug (please link to the issue fixed in the bug database).
+* Adding or removing an optimization.
I disagree with this point. Bug fixes should not make it into the release notes as a matter of course -- there may be specific high-impact bug fixes that may be worth mentioning, but bug fixes should not be included in the release notes as a matter of policy.

I agree that release notes for Clang/LLVM are currently insufficient, but we should also be careful not to over-compensate in the other direction, but including too much irrelevant noise.
