Uninformative link in Release Notes window

Bug Description

I launched the distribution upgrade for upgrading from 15.04 to 15.10.

The "Release notes" popup appeared, which has a paragraph that reads:
  To see what's new in this release, visit:


That link is just a generic list of features of Ubuntu and doesn't contain even the slightest bit of information about "what's new in this release".

Please either replace the link with a more specific release notes or changelog link, or rephrase the text introducing the link.

  [ Tim Lunn ]
  * DistUpgradeQuirks.py: add a quirk to add a gnome-session idle inhibitor
    this will fix the screensaver activating on Ubuntu GNOME (LP: #1565177)
    Leave this inhibitor in place on GNOME desktop to workaround broken
    lock screen after upgrade (LP: #1565178).

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * DistUpgrade/ReleaseAnnouncement: provide a link to the release notes of
    the version of Ubuntu to which users are upgrading. (LP: #1535098)
