I don't know, sorry.

Some NEWS entries turn out to be small research projects.  What I
usually do is use "git annotate" on NEWS to find what commit added the
entry, then look at the commit itself, and if necessary also at
discussions or bug reports it points to (or any related discussions on
the 2 mailing lists around the date of the commit).

If none of this gets you the answer, I guess contacting the author of
the commit is yet another way to find out.
