* Remove line about Changelog.

Code
====

XXX: If you feel like it and developers, foundation team, and RMs don't do it themselves,
     list important code work that is not covered already by the
     Release section (for example, the changes being worked on for
     the next version).

- We discussed our policy regarding languages support and started
  implementing the agreement we've reached ([[!tails_ticket 15807]],

  automatic upgrades ([[!tails_ticket 16603]]).

  major release and its implications for Tails.

- We continued to carry out our plans to deprecate tails-installer from
  Debian and Ubuntu.
