Research - Automatically create release notes from annotated tags
In our projects, we use a tag's annotation to provide release information like a changelog for that version.
The tag page of GitLab visualizes this message as plain text, even without line breaks. When clicking on a tag, the message has a simple, but quite nice formatting. Currently we need to create the release notes manually to get a nice formatting also on the tag list page. Unfortunately, this leads to duplicated content in a tag's detail page.
It would be great if there was an option to let GitLab convert a tag annotation into release notes automatically. Alternatively, the visualization within the tag list should be improved to be like on a tag's detail page.

For those leveraging Release, this could have a significant improvement to their experience, so 3.0 = Significant reach (~25% to ~50%).
Being able to leverage tag to create release notes will improve the efficiency of the release notes process.
1.0 = Medium impact
I would say, 80% = Medium confidence since the issue features a large amount of upvotes.
