Nothing too fancy - I use the open tickets for the milestone at
http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/report/3, plus the checklist at
https://github.com/numpy/numpy/blob/master/doc/HOWTO_RELEASE.rst.txt and
perhaps a small todo list in my inbox. Normally we only do bugfix releases
for specific reasons, so besides those I just scan through the list of
commits and pick only some relevant ones of which I'm sure that they won't
give any problems.

The fixed items under
http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/query?status=closed&group=resolution&milestone=1.7.0
http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/query?status=closed&group=resolution&milestone=2.0.0
probably give the best overview.
