[Bug 681298] New: ftpadmin script cripples NEWS diff (as sent to ftp-release-list)

  sysadmin | Other | unspecified

           Summary: ftpadmin script cripples NEWS diff (as sent to
    Classification: Infrastructure
           Product: sysadmin
           Version: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: sysadmin-maint gnome bugs

     GNOME version: ---

'ftpadmin install evolution-kolab-3.5.5.tar.xz' stated a NEWS diff of 4 lines
today, and that is what actually got sent to ftp-re-ease-list. See [0] for the
resulting diff and [1] for the actual diff.

There has been a release of evolution-kolab, which fixed a build issue
after the release of 3.5.4. That release was done on a separate gnome-3.5.4
branch. This is where the confusion of the ftpadmin script may result from.

For the current 3.5.5 release, the "previous version" with respect to the NEWS
diff should have been 3.5.4, but it seems such cannot be specified when
invoking the script.
