Speaking as former coordinator for the release notes I think I can safely 
say that at this point of the release cycle it should definitely be 
hosted on www.debian.org in the same location as the final version will 
be hosted.

In fact, getting the build infrastructure for that in place and getting 
first versions available is some months overdue IMO. The fact that there 
are no published release notes yet means for example that we cannot yet 
include them on CD images, which means that we still have a significant 
uncertainty how CD1 is going to look (as adding the release notes will 
push some packages from CD1 to CD2).

Doing any of this on alioth would IMO be a grave mistake.

Note that the Installation Guide is already being built (from XML) on 
www-master, with the difference that that is built from the last uploaded 
version of the package and the RN have always been built from SVN (or CVS 

I'd suggest trying to contact Frank Lichtenheld (djpig) directly for this. 
IIRC Jens Seidel may also have done some work on the build infrastructure 
for the release notes in the past.
