I'm not saying it's the best way, just that it's the way I've done it so
far (I guess I could have used the ChangeLog, but it's just not part of
the things that cross my mind).  I haven't needed it very often and
usually I can guess from the change date what version it likely belongs
to, so I can't remember having had to look at more than 1 version (and
since I have Emacs versions 19.34, 20.7, 21.4, 22.3, 23.4, 24.5, and
25.2 readily installed on my machine, it's very easy to check for those
