specifically so that tarballs would contain enough information to be
useful in isolation. This also allows distros like Debian to include
release notes with their packages.
Also, our changelog usually contains a whole bunch of information that's
useless to most users, and tends to obscure the important summary of
what's included in a release, or why users should upgrade. If we really
want our changelog to be the canonical location for release notes, then
we should a) be diligent about updating version information on our
tracker, and b) create a method for dumping this information into
doc/RELEASE so that we can still include that in our tarballs.

seem to work as well for me when I tried building the manuals in the
past. I haven't tried on 11.10 or 12.04 though, so perhaps this has
changed, but I've just been using my server to create releases, which is
still using 10.04 where the docbook packages are known to work for me.
I haven't tried building docs on other distros, but I believe Giallu has
had success on all Fedora releases.
