New submission from Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu>:

Following #41846, master issue for IDLE entries in Doc/whatsnew/3.11.rst.  When appropriate, add subsection 'idlelib and IDLE' to 'Improved Modules' The initial entries include important enhancements to IDLE since 3.10.0.  (Anything included in 3.10.0 does not belong here.

Because of IDLE's special backport policy (PEP 434), this initial part concludes with "The changes above have been backported to 3.9 maintenance releases."  Future subsubsections 'New in 3.10.z:', z >= 1, will follow for backports to 3.10.z.  These can precede the backport message as long as it is true. This issue will close after the last 3.10 maintenance release.

3.11.rst will always exist in the master branch.  Changes are applied to master and backported as needed at the time.  Entries will normally be the same in the What's New x.y for all x.y branches that get the enhancement.  However, each file needs different backports.  Hence separate PRs are needed for auto backport to work.  It seems convenient to have separate issues for each whatsnew/ file.
