As I prepare blurbs, I copy to a private file, replacing 'IDLE' with bpo-nnnnn.  And maybe edit a bit more, maybe not.  I occasionally copy batches to idlelib/NEWS.txt.  The first 2 times with git, I marked PR as trivial, but decided to open this continuing issue to record merges.

A script could be written to do this automatically, but it would have to be run just before the blurbs are moved into Python's NEWS.

Backport of 2703 is 2704, which has been merged.  Somehow bpo# on title got stripped and I did not notice until merged, and merge was allowed without trivial tag.

NOTE: THE DOUBLE SPACING AFTER THE SEPARATOR LINE IS INTENTIONAL, to avoid backport merge conflicts.
