appstreamcli metainfo-to-news regenerates the NEWS file quite a lot here. Maybe it's due to having used AppStream version 0.14.1, I do not know. For the comparison, the diff is here. It won't be a problem, but it just adds more places where one can make things wrong during the release process. I do not know whether it's caused by previous manual file editing or different versions of the appstreamcli producing different format.
