It's documented at the beginning of NEWS.  And you can see examples of
that in other NEWS entries.

The first line of a doc string should be a complete sentence.
Something like

    When non-nil, mode line displays column numbers zero-based.

  This variable has effect only when Column Number mode is turned on,
  which displays column numbers in the mode line.
  If the value is non-nil, the displayed column numbers start from
  zero, otherwise they start from one.

Also, 2 spaces between sentences...

Don't worry about these nits, they can be fixed when pushing.

Let's wait for a few days to give others a chance to comment.
