A summary should:
- be under 140 characters (including spaces)
- explain what the release is about in plain English
- be a unique description specific to the release
- not repeat the title
- begin with the most important words, so search engines can find the document (not ‘This release provides…’)
- end in a full stop
Remember: when a release title or summary is displayed in the release calendar or search engine results, users need to see whether this is what they want.
