Your call, I don't manage the www pages :)

IIRC, the release notes have always been a wiki page in mdv, that's an optimum

FWIW, the multimedia section was created as a consequence of reading a forum
topic where a user asked "why isn't vlc in the repos?"; it was a reminder, I
did have it in my todo to add a multimedia section (multimedia support == more
users IMO), just totally forgot (and unfortunately it wasn't spotted by anyone

I haven't seen such that suggestion; one caveat of having a web page vs. a wiki
page, is restricted access, for example I can touch the wiki but not www.

Sure; however I am not good with designing stuff, I can contribute to the raw
release notes, then the web team can divide and split it to their hearts'

Sure, I'd like that too, if people don't read it, I shouldn't my time trying to
make write a good page and also shouldn't waste translators' time working on
