[New-bugs-announce] [issue10507] Check well-formedness of reST markup within "make patchcheck"

New submission from Dave Malcolm <dmalcolm at redhat.com>:

Misc/NEWS needs to be valid reST.

Issue 10450 identified an issue where it wasn't.

"make patchcheck" potentially could check the markup of that file, and, potentially all the other places in the source tree that are supposed to be valid reST (all of the .rst files in the source tree, especially those below Doc).

I don't know what the best way of doing this is, without pulling in a lot of dependencies.  (Perhaps we could look for rst2html on $PATH, and use it if it's present?).
