The former (a separately-available changelog, linked to from the release 
announcement) is what other software projects call release notes. The 
ntpd project also has something called release notes (on Dave Mills' 
website), but unfortunately this does not take the form of a log of 
changes in functionality; rather it is a zero-based description of how 
the 'current' release (without, BTW, explicitly identifying it) of V4 
differs from V3.

So I guess that what I'm asking for is indeed something new, but 
(assuming that the release notes are under version control) should be 
able to be manually derived from the changelog of that document.

The latter however (advice from the project team as to the urgency of 
deploying this release) is in fact a narrative on the compelling event 
leading to the release. Whoever takes the decision to release would be 
the source of this information.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Jan
