I might sound like a broken CD here, but why define the expiration as
part of the news format instead of specifying it in the package manager
as a user defined variable? Various use cases requires different
treatment, so leaving it up to user seems more relevant to me, and we
could allow information to be presented as part of stages to give a hint
for what dates to look for?
