I'd prefer to keep them all.

Almost nobody reads the changelog anyway. But who does, I believe,
expects to see all the changes on one page.

MySQL changelog link is good - but it's more like our relnotes page, a
simplified user-level description of whatever was done in the release.

While our changelog is really technical, everything that was committed,
log. It's not a replacement of a relnotes, it has value on itself. But
then, it should not be filtered, it should indeed include everything
that was committed.
