I'm glad this is so.  I didn't know how things stood.

However, my main point is the last one: regardless of the current state
of marking up NEWS, we still need someone to collect just the parts
that checkers should read.

To make things really easy, we should omit the parts of NEWS that
aren't pertinent and someone doesn't need to read for this purpose.

Would someone please volunteer to do it?
