If you fill out the "public information" field when entering these
ISOs in the webapp, it treats the text there as markdown-formatted,
just like news items. This will then show up on the release details
page, the RSS feed description, and on the downloads page. I had hoped
this would be a good tradeoff between a news item and having no
meta-info about a release.
