Hi,

I resubmit that patch to the list since the original mail (patch 40224)
was ill-formed. Hopefully this one will be good. Florian, please could
you confirm your positive review, so that I can push it using git-pw?

Paul

Since you are there, add the double space after period as well.  The rest
look ok, thanks.

in NEWS where the double space is missing, but that could be a separate
patch if needed).
