I had already opened a bug report against the 'release-notes'
pseudo-package to ask for this information to be included in the
release notes back in June, including a proposed wording, which

Unfortunately this hasn't been added to the SVN repository yet.
I'm merging this report to avoid further confusion and I'm CC'ing
the release team to bump the priority of this issue.
