Indeed.  During distro Python version transitions (including the 3.5 one I'm
currently working on), verifying intentional changes via NEWS entries has been
really critical.

I'll point again to https://wiki.python.org/moin/PortingToPy3k/34to35 which
I'm using to document the changes that I've seen break actual packages.

Thanks for volunteering to do this work David, and for doing it in the past
