Thanks Larry! With the old hg-based workflow this was only slightly
annoying, but the new git-based workflow turned this into a hell. If
you have several PRs that updates the same Misc/NEWS section you
needed to spent many time for just resolving conflicts one by one and
waiting CI tests. And be lucky if other core developer trying to do
the same withis PRs at the same time.
