Modify relnotes-gen.py to list "Release Notes" separately from "Other Issues Fixed", and other improvements

Key: HADOOP-7723
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7723
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Improvement
Affects Versions:, 0.23.0
Reporter: Matt Foley

The current tool for generating release notes, relnotes-gen.py, describes all the Jiras fixed in the release. Jiras with non-empty "Release Note" field show the release note, others show the Description field. They are sorted in reverse-numerical order. I propose the following changes:

# List the jiras with Release Notes first. These are usually the larger or incompatible changes that most readers will care about most. Then list the other jiras with their descriptions.
# Sort in forward numerical order.
# Limit description lengths to 500 characters, but print the full Release Notes for any jira that has them.
# Generate lists of jiras by combining info from the Jira database (Fixed jiras with Fixed Version of X.Y.Z release) and the CHANGES.txt file (additions since the last release). This will accomodate jiras that have been fixed in the current new release, but can't be marked Resolved due to being pending on other branch(es).
