Description (last modified by )
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.

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...
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 andlocal/bin/sage-banner
.
