random ideas to get devs motivated:
* don't mention features not listed in the release announcments
* don't list them in commit-digest
* don't include them in quality team checks and make that team rock so that 
devs see the advantage to have them test their new features
* once soft freeze is in place use git-hook to enforce that commits need a bug 
number (either it's a bugfix or it's a feature which needs to be listed in 

Some of these could be done already in 4.10, but for e.g. git hooks we should 
give the devs at least one cycle to adjust to the new way.
