Typo "passwords"

Other issue: In the three months centered on the 1.12.0 release we'll be
supporting 1.9, 1.10, 1.11, 1.12, and trunk in parallel, so I think we
should reduce the CHANGES management effort. To take this commit as an
example, while brane added a line to the 1.12 CHANGES, the RM's of 1.9,
1.10, 1.11 will have to copy it manually. That adds up.

The first idea that comes to mind is to put the CHANGES info in the log
message (as I advised rpluem@ yesterday to do), whence 'release.py
write-changelog' can pick it automatically. Other approaches are
possible, of course; I don't mind which one is chosen¹, but I do think
we should do plan ahead and make sure we can generate the CHANGES
sections for stable lines with as little effort as possible.



¹ Though write-changelog has already been implemented, and is really
very sensible, so I don't see any reason to switch away from it.
