Perhaps the developers, who introduce or change those

their use. They should be in the position to do this accurately and

need them, don't have them.
The problem is getting them to do it; half the new committers often
fail to update the release notes, let alone remember to document
stuff. I do try to make a note of various things I alter, although
sometimes I lapse, of course, but for this to work, we'd need to
convince all the committers of the benefits of doing so.
