Package: kpartx
Version: 0.5.0-3
Severity: normal

multipath-tools 0.5.0-2 adds a NEWS entry about transitioning to
systemd.  That NEWS entry should not appear in the kpartx binary
package, which ships no init scripts or systemd services.

(I'd also argue that it should not appear in the other multipath-tools
binary packages either, since it's no more applicable there than in many
other Debian packages also making the same transition.)

There's nothing we can do about the past anymore, and it's my
understanding that there will not be any point releases of jessie.
In the future maybe the entire NEWS file should be zapped because it
only contains old news by now.
