Out of curiousity, e.g. New Packages for Jade and Kinetic 2016-12-15,

UPDATE: thanks for taking a look @ahendrix, but in any previous release note moveit has not been included for kinetic (2016-10-24, 2016-10-04). And now I'm the one of a few who run bloom for moveit so I've been paying attention :) . During soak period we bumped versions a few times.

The sync data shows that the public version was updated: ros-kinetic-moveit: 0.9.1-2 -> 0.9.3-0

The GBP repo for moveit also shows multiple previous releases into kinetic:

The report is generated from diffing the debian repositories. The implementation is here: Debian control files only support a single maintainer: so we only get the first maintainer listed at this stage.

That explains for the fewer maintainers listed in the release report. What about my other question?

Same answer. The output of that script for each sync is here: I just copy and paste for the announcement.

The only resource where packages enumerate the maintainers is in their manifest (package.xml) files.

I still can't get why most of the maintainers listed in the package.xml I referred to didn't appear in the release note. Where's the code for generating the release note?
