This ether should became common practice or it'll stay useless and even
harmful. It's hard to anticipate upstream NEWS in our ChangeLogs since
very few packages do this and as I see logic behind our ChangeLogs they
are intended for changes in our package (ebuilds), not for upstream
changes. At the same time this additional information makes our
ChangeLogs harder to read and find out what was changed in ebuild and
why. That said I think it's really useful to have this information with
rsync but it's better come with different solution instead of utilizing
package's ChangeLogs...
