I think what Chris is asking is to have NEWS entries in the branch
where a commit is done, no mater if the fix was already reported in a
previous branch NEWS file.
It'd mean instead of easy merge on release we'd have to have hard and
time-consuming cleanup of old NEWS - I'd have to go through NEWS and for
each entry go to 5.3 NEWS and check if it's there too and if it's there
remove it. Or we'd just have it twice in both 5.3 and 5.4 sections?
We need to figure it out btw as if we carry NEWS with patches in git
that would mean patches will never cleanly apply between branches (as
NEWS files are always different). We need to have a better mechanism for
BTW, why we don't put the same in the trunk NEWS then?
