Yes, that's the kind of thing that ought to be fixed in the
copy-editing sweep, which as usual nobody has thought to arrange for
before the text got sent off to the translators.  Normally if this was
a regular d-l-e review I would try to ensure lists were consistently
either "X, Y and Z" or "X, Y, and Z" (either style would do), but for
the release-notes that may be too much to hope for.

As it happens I was just about to post the about.dbk file as a test
case - its contents seem stable and I only see one missing comma in
the whole file.  See attachment.

One list-post per file is certainly the most convenient way of dealing
with them from my angle, but would people prefer it if I try to split
things up by "type" of fix, or are people expecting me to submit a
number of separate bugreports equal to the total Levenshtein distance?
