Subject: [PATCH 1/2] vc-dwim: relax file-spec ChangeLog regexp to accommodate
 new GCS-style

* vc-dwim.pl (main): Relax the file-spec matching regexp.  Before,
the regexp was /^\* (\S.*?):/, while now we also allow a line
ending in ")": /^\* (\S.*?)(:|\)$)/
* NEWS (Bug fixes): Mention it.

   "vc-dwim a/ChangeLog b/ChangeLog" would mistakenly complain about
   an "--author/ChangeLog mismatch" even though the two name/email
   pairs in the ChangeLog files were identical.
