NEWS Items

The URL mentioned to look up NEWS items,, only shows some of the history. At the time of writing (February 2023), it only goes back to February 2017.

Earlier NEWS items are available in the git repository, there's a non-obvious URL syntax to look at that repo at a specific date. Just choose the same date as you've chosen for each step of the gentoo-historical portage tree snapshot:

From there, click on the top-most (newest before the given date) commit and there the "Browse Files" button, that will take you to a directory listing which already displays the individual NEWS items along with their titles.
