Follow-up Comment #6, bug #58364 (project make):

It is indeed hard to communicate the breaking change to the users / community
when it is not in the initial NEWS file. I don't think there isn't a lot that
can be done.

The current way it is in the, to be released, NEWS file is in my opinion not
an adequate solution. The message is hidden in the original release texts and
the users that try to keep up to date will only read the new NEWS items and
thus miss this hidden message. I would suggest a special header above the 4.3
release with this (and other?) missed NEWS items.

Good to read that in the cmake 3.16.6 it has been fixed as well (hard to test
as no cmake 3.16.6 is yet available for the Cygwin platform, but that is of no
concern to GNU Make / CMake, it is just the lagging of the platform specific

(hopefully the search engines will be able to find these references, as I
didn't find an appropriate link)
