Description Michael Hideo 2008-10-14 17:27:41 EDT
Description of problem:
In an effort to make clear the unification of content between the Release Note/Errata Note/Change Log, the text that says "Release Notes" needs to be changed to: "Release Note, Errata Note, Changelog"

Please see the attached screenshot for further clarification.

Although we have the Release Notes field, it is not being utilized to its fullest potential. We have received a text file containing multisentence descritpions of each of the 375 kernel bugs going into RHEL5.3  

Were this information put into the Release Notes field, we could have automated the extraction.

This will not be trivial as we will need to add a hack the templates to look for the cf_release_notes field name and then change to a different description for the field to display as you suggest. Currently we can not just simply update the description directly in the database is any newlines or <br> tags will be ignored and the description will be very wide with all of the extra text.

according to the reasons mentioned by Dave, I don't think we will be able to add this feature. so i will close the bug, please reopen if you have any other ideas.
