Information on upgrading in release notes
This is a proposed process change that I hope we can discuss at all-hands.
- I know there is a file that lists all the options the BIND parser knows.
- I expect/hope there is a file that lists all the supported build options. I know a few of our users do try to compare the options from the release they are running to the release they are upgrading to - but imho most of them don't and they all need to know what these differences are.
Can we do a diff on these from one major version to the next, and then get someone to explain in English to users, in a paragraph in the release notes, what are the impacts on upgrading to the release? (at least additions and deletions - I realize changes in behavior are harder)
I realize we try to address these in the release notes today, and we usually do a good job, but without a process step that compares with the options supported in the prior branch, it is always possible we will miss some.
