Exactly.  Lots of us have been trained by much experience that a file
named CHANGES contains *all* of the changes, while a file named
RELEASE_NOTES includes selected changes of particular significance.
It's confusing to call a release-notes file CHANGES.

Appending a note that, for a full change log, [DO THIS], would probably
be well received.
