We used to use the name ``Release Notes'' until we started putting
installation material in them, then we changed it to ``Foo Bar Baz
Release x.xx Getting Started.'' Known generically by those in love
TLAs (three letter accronyms) as GSGs, they usually contain two
short chapters, ``Getting Started With the Foo Bar Baz,'' which is
installation instructions and the like, and ``What's New in Release
x.xx,'' which is your traditional release note stuff.

Not exactly Earth shattering kaboom!, but it works.
