yes, there's a separate issue filed to mitigate unexpected stack needs 
of the Process Reaper.

That might still be useful to mitigate unexpected memory use during

There is a proposal for a code-tools project to formalize the generation 
of release notes
though I haven't seen a response.


There are some conventions for labeling release notes and process but I 
don't have them all in one place.

The subtask should have a label = "release-note";
There are labels starting with "RN-" that indicate what kind of change 
it is.
RN-NewFeature might be appropriate.
The first line should be written to be brief and specific about the 
change in behavior since
it may be used in a list of release notes.
Take a look at another release note for example:
