Include a section with fix number and description of fixes in the release notes

One of my customers opened a support case for an issue with CSM, the Support team found out they hit a bug in CSM and suggested to upgrade the CSM to a newer version ( that included the fix, but they were not able to find any information in the release notes related to their problem nor a list of fixes.

I also checked the RNs for version 6.5.x, 6.4 and it's the same.

I think the main purpose of a release notes document is to have a section of "APARs resolved" or any analogous of that, so it would be very helpful to start including fix numbers and their details.

    Thanks for the feedback. However this is not an Enhancement to the product. With a Continuous Delivery product, customers are always encouraged to move to the latest release and thus the main purpose of the release notes is not to indicate what was fixed, but to indicate what is new and what known issues there are for the release. But we understand the feedback and look into adding this type of info if possible in the future. However, this Idea/RFE will be declined because this is not an enhancement to the product which is what the Idea/RFEs track.
