I also have some _very minor_ suggestions to NEWS file:
1.) "- avoid adding duplicate target names"
This sounds strange, maybe "-avoid adding duplicate targets" sounds
better (in fact, different packages (from different repos) can have the
same package names, so the original line is more precise, so I dunno)
2.) "- fix removing multiple items in dependency chain"
I think this refers to 59295081982b33640f4e16589ef281872da540b5. In
this case we can remove this, -Ru is a celebrated new feature of 3.2,
so this problem existed in git only (after ~pkgname_pkg_cmp kill:-P).
3.) we may mention the new "pacman -S dep>=2.0" facility (this was
introduced automagically)
