Presumably he was referring to http://www.openbsd.org/plus.html,
which is directly off the openbsd main www page.
Our equivalent is http://www.netbsd.org/Changes/source-changes.html
which only lists changes from the last release (though it does
try to split them up in a nice fashion :)
I'm just in the process of extending it to parse doc/CHANGES.prev
and produce one file per release.
I do recall someone mentioning that at least one developer did
not tend to note things in doc/CHANGES.
