2.1
===
New features
------------
  - Default to foo.
  - Very user-understandable text actually.

https://twistedmatrix.com/trac/browser/trunk/twisted/topfiles/NEWS which actually follow a predefined formatting scheme https://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/ReviewProcess#Newsfiles

Twisted Core 13.0.0 (2013-03-19)
================================
Features
--------
 - The foo was twisted.
 - And the bar was barred.

So looks like we might have to allow any random prefix text before version number and release datetime spec.

Five is right out
