I would change this:
s/would print a long UUID-including file system name/
could print long UUID-including file system names/
I usually try to make the first line of the NEWS entry a summary, like:
df avoids long UUID-including file system names, in the default listing.
On recent enough kernel/tools, these long names can be used, pushing second
and subsequent columns far to the right. Now, when a long name refers
to a symlink, and no file systems are specified, df prints the
usually-short referent instead.
