> Also, the current "known issues" part of the release manager only mentions closed issues, not PR's fixing bugs that were closed.

To be more precise, the known issues listed are only the *opened* issues that are marked as bugs. The closed issues (e.g bugs) are mentioned at the end. So if a PR that is fixing a bug is correctly linked to the issue one can find it.

> I don't think the release notes should mention all >300 PR's that were merged

I agree, the bug fixing PRs should not be there and also minor PRs. We have labels for that and they can be used to filter them. This was not implemented when I dumped the list of changes (still WIP).

> only those that might seem useful to users, and not even all of those

I don't think so. The release notes already contain a "highlight" section where the release manager can put what she/he thinks is important mentioning in the release. But we should still mention all other changes (except bug fixes and minor PRs) to be complete. Also mentioning the PR number related is useful if one wants to track the code changes easily.
