Now that 2.7.2 has been released and NEWS is up to date (thanks mitch!),
let's make sure to keep it up to date from now on. That means that
whenever you make a commit that is worth being mentioned in NEWS, add it
to NEWS along with the other changes in the commit.
That way making a new release will require less effort since whoever
makes a release don't have to go through months of commits history first.
Making frequent releases is something we want to be as easy as possible.
