[tz] [PATCH] Formatting of NEWS file is inconsistent in 2021b

All previous entries in NEWS have a format of headings following nested
levels of indentation — the release is unindented, then subheadings with
a 2-space indentation, then the contents of each subhead are blocks
indented with 2 spaces.
In the 2021b release, there is some commentary about the release that
isn't indented to the level of the "Briefly" sub-block, but also doesn't
have its own heading. I think it would be preferable to put this note
under a heading rather than as free-floating content at the level of
I've attached a patch to move the note into the "Briefly" subheading,
though it could also be a separate heading like "Note about the 2021b
release" or something.
I don't really expect this format to be guaranteed or anything, but for
selfish reasons I liked the consistency of the previous format since it
makes it much easier for me to parse the NEWS file for repackaging in
the Python tzdata format. Obviously I do not consider this any sort of
contract or required interface, but since it seems unlikely that
accepting this patch would increase your maintenance burden and it will
decrease my maintenance burden by a decent amount in the future, I'm
hoping you wont' mind accepting this patch (or a similar one).
