We'll have the release notes, but later than usual.

If I understood correctly, Jeff's position is that someone in the
release team should lead the effort of writing the release notes.

So, what happened for 2.18.0: I sent some mails on marketing-list (first
one at the end of January), asking for volunteers and trying to
organize a meeting about the release notes. But there was no real
enthusiastic reaction to this.

To me, the main issue is that we (where "we" == GNOME community) have
real difficulties finding and keeping writers. The release notes of the
last 4 releases has been written by 4 different teams (correct me if I'm
wrong). Another issue is that we need to have someone (could be a
release team member, but could as well be someone else) leading the
release notes effort, where leading doesn't necessarily means writing.
