1/ I'd like to collect ideas how we could improve the openSUSE release
notes. Traditionally, we use these 4 categories for sorting the release
notes entries:

* Installation:
* General:
* Update:
* Technical:

In the context of https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=557412 I'd
like to propose:

. New Features and Essential Changes
. Issues During New Installation
. Issues During Upgrading the System
. Miscellaneous Technical Details



2/ The yast ncurses ui will no longer display the .rtf files, but .txt
files. You should create these files using "w3m --dump". The advantage
would be that you can use advanced formatting features such as tables in
the graphical YaST. I'll probably use the default DocBook style sheets
to produce the files for the graphical YaST.


Ideally, you could also add relevant info here:
