Right. Nevertheless one checks normally only the trunk version out. I think
it would be a good idea to switch to trunk as soon as working on a new
release starts. This simplifies contribution a lot.

A few further notes:
 * Currently the suffix .dbk is used for DocBook/XML files. Is this a usual
   one? Other documents I know use .xml which I prefer. (That's only a minor
   issue but once the code is moved to trunk one can fix this as well.)
 * Currently multiple PO files are used. One for each English document.
   I think a single PO file is much preffered.
 * In my older build I still found the strange filename en/release-notes..pdf.
   Nobody noticed it yet? This will clearly make trouble once we link to this
   file from the website. Maybe it is accessible via language code "" or ".".

PS: Thanks for the great work on the Release Notes!
