Hi Tony,

thanks for the patch, and for the will to contribute.  I'm not sure this patch should be merged though; the original intention was to use "versionadded" where the API item is completely new.  So "The parameter x was added" in a function is using "versionchanged" because only an aspect of the function's signature was changed.

There may be a bit of confusion because many people wrote changes, and not every change is reviewed by the same developers, but this is the original intent that I think we should not change wholesale.
