Hi all,

Going forward would it be worth doing release notes progressively as bug fixes and features are added to the code. This may make the actual release process easier.
As I have not contributed to bug fixes/features this far I may be missing something (e.g. this is already happening)

My 2c.

Dear coreboot folks,

Martin said, that the missing/unwritten release notes are the reason holding up the coreboot 4.7 release.

Could the maintainers, developers, and users please jump in and help write them. Please use the pad [1]. Some coreboot folks already contributed. Big thank you to them.

Also, thanks to the now mostly great and elaborate commit messages, the release notes should really just give a broad overview. The detail can then be looked up.

Additionally, can you think of the something that has to be adapted by someone switching from coreboot 4.6 to coreboot 4.7?
