No need for a news entry in default.  We haven't released 3.6 yet, so the bugfix from 3.5 is just a carry forward of the corrected behavior.  That isn't news ;-)

I'm not sure I see what was missed here (I am not a mercurial jedi).  My 3.5 checkout shows the change and so does the 3.6.   What needs to be done at this point ?

I concur with Serhiy.
