No.  I mean that in the current trunk (r1418) there are no NEWS entries
for version 1.2.1, 1.2.2, 1.2.3, or 1.2.4 at all.  There are entries for
1.2.0 but then there is bump to 1.3.0 directly.  I suspect you branches
1.2.x after 1.2.0 but then forgot about forward-porting the 1.2.x NEWS
entries back to the trunk NEWS file after releases.
