A few days too late for the 1.9.0 release cycle :( This responds to Stefan N?we's request for a 'git help' command that would access the release notes. ($gmane/240595 17 Jan 2014).
I've used the full name "release-notes" for the help guide rather than Stefan's original 'git help relnotes'. The release-notes man page lists just the notes for the current release. The combined notes for all releases is nearing 15k lines. The one formatting niggle is that the included text is column shifted such that the the raw text now starts at col 12 for the man page and reaches past col 80. Is there an attribute setting to not indent the included block text within a man page? It looks fine in --web format. I used the code.google link, rather than kernel.org, for the previous release notes to match the link currently used in git(1).
