In the special case of 3.4.0, I did not prepare an explicit release notes
list; there is just a Bugzilla query. That was a one-time solution
because there were over 900 bugs, and my usual practice of organizing the
fixed bugs and modifying titles to make them clearer didn't seem feasible.
So what that means is that the link from gcc-3.4/changes.html will find
your report if you set the target for 3.4.0.

My suggestion as Release Notes Guy is as follows: for the 3.4.0 case only,
if you find that anything was missed, go ahead and set the target for
3.4.0. In the future (since I plan to go back to my previous releases
notes procedure), set the target milestone appropriately *and* send me
mail, and I'll do a patch tot he release notes.
