Since we are switching to towncrier for managing the changelog now
(see ), there is one important thing for you to keep in mind
when committing or merging:
If a change is noteworthy, there has to be a newsfragment file
for the changelog.
Otherwise the change will not appear in the release
Compiling the changelog manually was a huge effort, thus towncrier
will speed up releasing a lot.
Due to towncrier I'll be able to release quicker (and hopefully do
more often :-) But this also meant that I well send only a few
minutes on the release-notes - just for sorting the entries a bit.
If there is no newsfragment, the change will not be recorded -
which is a bad thing if the change is user-visible.
Noteworthy (but undocumented): If you have neither a pull-request
number nor a issue-number, use a *unique* alpha-numeric prefix
(without dots!). This will make the fragment to show up in the
changelog without a number.
