Now that python kz fix is in, we should tag and release flux-core-0.6.0. Here's a quick stab at the release notes. I went back to our previous form for the NEWS file, which was easier to compile this time around because there was relatively little change.

I'm half tempted to remove the embedded URLs from the existing 0.5.0 NEWS entry because it is unreadable as a text file...

If this is ok, I'll go ahead and open a PR

The hash-numbered issue/pr references don't seem to render as links from the release page e.g. see release notes for 0.4.1 or in-tree.

That's why I added the links in 0.5.0 but as you say maybe its better to have readable text. I'm fine with that - just wanted to point out the reason for the links.

Yeah, I did understand that and liked it at the time, but after trying to read through the NEWS.md file on the console I don't think it is worth it as I'd wager most people would be reading NEWS as a text file.

For the "pretty" NEWS entry with links we could direct people to the flux-framework.github.io NEWS entries, which replace the hash-numbered issues with links.

That reminds me that PR 19 in the flux-framework.github.io was never merged

Sounds like a good plan.

Perhaps want to mention "upstream" as well?
