While at it, with Carmen's support, we also found a beautiful way to
auto-generate release notes:

gh api repos/OSGeo/grass/releases/generate-notes -f tag_name="8.0.0"
-f target_commitish=releasebranch_8_0 -q .body


## What's Changed
* fix tests for Python 3 by @petrasovaa in https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/1
* readme: Convert to markdown and add travis badge by @pmav99 in
* r.contour: fix broken contour lines (#3846), clean contour lines
trac… by @metzm in https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/6
* pygrass.gis: Make Region importable from grass.pygrass.gis by
@pmav99 in https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/2
* r.random: Add -s flag, remove -i flag, redo interface by @wenzeslaus
in https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/1054
* CI: Run Docker for all release branches by @wenzeslaus in

## New Contributors
* @pmav99 made their first contribution in https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/8
* @rouault made their first contribution in
* @anikaweinmann made their first contribution in

Hence it comes with who-created-the-merged-PR, contributors and new
contributors list etc. (of course still needs manual or scripted
sorting, the gh REST API seems to support "sort=pushed"?).

Drawback: how to filter out the "old" stuff (we seek the delta between
7.8.6 and releasebranch_8_0) - any idea?
