Description (last modified by jdemeyer)

leif suggested at #9433 that we add a file to SAGE_ROOT containing release notes

Perhaps the release notes could be produced using mvngu's rnotes script (also available at http://bitbucket.org/mvngu/rnotes/. We could in fact (with his permission) include that script with Sage, and then run it as part of the sage-sdist script. It might be better to not automate its creation, though.

W.r.t. VERSION.txt: I think a single line containing the current version (perhaps also including "[last] upgraded from ...") in plain format should be sufficient; cf. also #9434 and local/bin/sage-banner.

In sage-sdist, should we write VERSION.txt to SAGE_ROOT, or should we create a symlink to spkg/standard/VERSION.txt?

At the very least we could probably add the sum total changelog to SAGE_ROOT. Which I notice is no longer on the website, only the individual changelogs...
