OK, done below.

All fine to apply.   Thanks!

the way, should we move to, since that is the preferred file name
these days?)

It has been for years, too.   Yes, let's make that change in 4.3.x.

However, 'make distcheck' fell over for a different reason - lib/gnulib- tries to create a temp file in the read-only $(srcdir), rather than
in the read-write $(builddir).

I'm sure there was originally a reason for doing it the way I did, but
your change seems fine to me.

+* No NEWS was kept for earlier releases.  Known release dates include:
+** release 3.2, 1991-08-28
+** release 3.1, 1991-08-21
+** release 3.0, 1991-08-21
+** release 2.2, 1991-04-05
+** release 2.1, 1991-01-01
+** release 2.0, 1990-11-20

+** release 1.1, 1990-06-24
+** release 1.0, 1990-06-22

Thanks for this.   Where's this information from?
