I just uploaded a commit with a preliminary documentation in the file you

I am learning the texinfo format on the way, so I still need to learn
how to do a cross reference and other details (it is not trivial for a
markdown/rst/Latex user like me).

I added the documentation about the indicator on the beginning of the
Node because I think it is somehow more general as it is not restricted
to graphical displays like the boundaries indicator.

Maybe it is possible to add some division in the page to highlight that
there are at least 2 topics there. (Markdown equivalent to #, ##, ###
and so on)

I also removed most of the text in NEWS (As I moved it to the
manual). Please give a look if it is better now.

OK, where in the manual do you think I should move this? What section/file?

I think the section "Displaying Boundaries" is a good place, it
currently describes only the fringe indicators of the beginning and
end of the buffer.  Since fill-column indicator is a display feature,
I think this is the right place.  The file to edit is

Robert suggested to describe this in "Fill Commands", but I think we
should only mention the indicator there, and have a cross-reference to
"Displaying Boundaries", where the full description should live.

An alternative for "Display Boundaries" is "Display Custom", which is
a hodge-podge of display-related customizations.
