 Who does that? How is the process? I'm thinking about to have a readable
 list like:
 > https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/releases/
 > https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/61.0/releasenotes/
 > https://www.sketchapp.com/updates/
 > Do you think is something worth to explore for the next iteration? If
 yes, I'll fill a ticket for it.

 We had a brief conversation about this on IRC in #tor-dev. Here is what I
 said there:
  Currently the change log is maintained as a text file in git by boklm and
 GeKo (mostly).
  It lives at https://gitweb.torproject.org/builders/tor-browser-
  about:tbupdate reads it as a local file (no network access)
  We could just put it on a website but I like having something in the
 browser package that people download too.
  Some people probably want all the details with ticket numbers and other
 people would probably prefer a simpler, friendlier format.
