> Well, this creates a problem. I don't want to do the manual step as the release should
consist of "mvn release:prepare release:perform".  I can easily add the release notes to the
zip but they won't be in svn since they are generated to the target directory and then copied
into the zip by the assembly plugin.  I've thought about putting them into a META-INF directory
to indicate that they were generated.

I decided to see how Maven handles this problem.  They don't include the release notes in
either the binary or the source distribution. Instead, they have the release notes as a separate
download from the download site.

I could easily do this as well if the download page was set up to support it.
