Can we provide the "changes" information automatically somehow? It
seems that it just duplicates the release notes and/or the Git
history, and causes unnecessary merge conflicts.

e.g. if you go to
https://github.com/talex5/mirage-trace-viewer/releases you'll see a
list of changes for each release, but I don't maintain a separate
changes file and I don't feel I'm losing anything by doing this.
