    Description

      As per the discussion on the mailing list we had decided to deprecate manual additions to CHANGES.txt and generate it automatically.

      I propose to use Apache YETUS for generating CHANGES and release notes and it has following benefits.

      1. Generating changes.txt from jira is much more flexible than from commit messages. As I noted earlier also, commits can't be modified, so if a developer forgets to attach metadata / attaches wrong metadata then generating release notes will be incorrect.
      2. Yetus provides nice markdown formatted change log with links to each issue. They are easy to read and you can go to the jira by clicking through the github.
      3. It can also automate the generation of release notes, if we add them to corresponding JIRA.
      4. We don't need to write / maintain and go through all the existing/future learning that YETUS went through.
