It's not about versions but about integrating/coordinating our internal
development process with http://bugs.maemo.org . This is what we are
doing but progress is slower as (I) expected. There is progress, though.
I hope to see some concrete results for Chinook and the problem solved
at least at satisfactory levels for Diablo. 

One visible step forward to be seen (soon) and shared with you will be
the reorganization of bugs.maemo.org. The current structure of products
and components needs a drastic improvement in order to be more
comprehensive to users and developers, and also in order to match better
our internal tools and processes.

No problem sounding harsh, we know that we should do much better at this
point. However, the process is not chaotic. It is precisely the
structure and complexity of the process what makes changes and
gathering/sharing information more difficult than it seems.

I wasn't asking for anything fancy. You perfectly answered my question. 

"Changelog" and "Release notes" might have different meanings for
different people. I'm asking in order to know better the expectations.
