When creating a new release, default the Releases Notes from all of the checkin comments since the last release.
When creating a new release the Release Notes field is empty.
The way that we use Octopus, when someone is making a Release it is their job to manually copy across all the checkin comments (from Team City) for all the build versions since the last Release was made.
One per bullet (using markdown) so we get a nice list.
Sometimes a checkin comment doesn't need to go in the release notes, or it needs to be elaborated, ... no worries. That is part of the manual job.
So what this idea is about is: how wonderful it would be if Octopus could do that automatically ?! Awesomeness!
This is Part One of a 2-part idea.....

I think the specifics of a feature like this are way too different between use cases to give any generic implementation that is preferable to a script snippet that just generates the necessary release notes.
