   The NEWS file in the release is generated from the online release notes.
   This patch fixes two small problems in this entry.  The formatting looks

I suspected that the NEWS file was generated, but I didn't know from where.

Maybe the conversion program is opening up a new item after the </li>
or at the whitespace between the </li> and the <ul>.

Yes, there is a link on the extensions page

By the way, I made the patches on a RedHat 7.1 Pentium II Linux system
last night (using ld-2.12.1 and RedHat's gcc and as), and I just checked
them on a SCO OpenServer 5.0.5 Pentium system (using SCO's dev sys).
