I was just asking a new contributor to prepare a patch for backporting,
and realised I don't know exactly the new RN: syntax.  Is it strictly
one line (which might go on for a bit) or multi-line, and what is the
guidance etc?

Can someone who knows the exact syntax and what should be in the note
please document the

RN: ....

syntax for the wiki:
