Makes sense. The attached patch updates the wording, however, requires
a .py update that I haven't written yet. dev@ folks, feel free to beat
me to finishing the .py part.
release.py: Add details to email announcements.
Say "This is a feature/security/bugfix release"
and "Subversion is an open-source version control system" [quoted
from our homepage] to make the announcements self-contained for
readers of announce_at_apache.org and other aggregators.
(...): Pass two new parameters, 'security' and 'dot-zero', to the ezt
templates. ***NOT YET WRITTEN***
