[llvm-dev] What is the process for release notes for LLVM

The way things work in practice is, when it’s time for a release, the release manager makes a general plea for people to write release notes.  This might include pleas to individuals whom the release manager has noticed made a note-worthy change; I seem to remember getting one such email once upon a time.

Asking for a release note as part of the review would be a new thing, but IMO brilliant.

Hi all,

I'm aware that LLVM has release notes, but I've never written one myself, despite making at times some fairly significant changes to the various llvm tools. Is there any documentation in LLVM on when a release note is appropriate and how to write one? Should reviewers be asking people to write release notes as part of reviews?
