I agree the "different audiences" problem can be addressed by using appropriate commit message formatting to say "this bit goes in NEWS" (perhaps with some metadata to say which section).

However, that doesn't solve the question of how we fix inevitable mistakes. One thought that occurs to me is a "fixNEWS" subdir where we can put text files named after commit hashes. If there is a file in fixNEWS, then the script would ignore the corresponding commit and use the file contents instead.
