That's a good idea, because people are more and more used to only create PR on github, and it would be helpful to be more explanatory on the way we work to push changes. I still think we should encourage the use of the github milestone as Rohit did with the 4.11.0 ( https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/milestone/3?closed=1) to list the changes in the release notes with the help of the labels to tag the PRs instead of relying on the jira ticket (it requires to have another login).
As far as I can remember, the JIRA tickets are used to list the changes of a release, but nothing else. Or am I missing something?
