These two look like something that would be dealt with on Org's side.
This report has been reassigned there, so perhaps someone on the Org
list will have thoughts or decide to work on a patch.

And I guess this one is for Emacs's side at the time of the sync.

I was looking through the NEWS* files in the Emacs repo for guidance
from other packages, but I see mostly the same thing ("GNUS-NEWS",
"MH-E-NEWS", "ERC-NEWS", ...).  I guess there is one that's a little
different, though I'm not sure how helpful tacking on "./" is: "See the
file ./MH-E-NEWS for details".

Do you have any suggestions for what would be more helpful to put there?
