The NEWS entry documenting new function 'insert-into-buffer'
 http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/commit/etc/NEWS?id=210b10f3fe7d2b847f7af31276c05001c8fc0ed7
 appears to me to be self-contradictory.

I don't see how it contradicts itself, but it's not a good NEWS entry.
I've now rewritten it.

That comment makes me think you may have missed the point, and since
you don't include your updated entry I can't tell if the new one
addresses it or not.

Let's try it algebraically:

+*** New utility function 'x'.
+This is like 'x', but works in the opposite direction.

Literally a direct self-contradiction.

No, it said

  This is like 'y', but works in the opposite direction.

(The name of the other function was similar, but still different.)

Are we looking at the same thing?

That's a typo from a month ago, which was fixed less than a day
afterwards, see 10f18ff13b8bc416553d7b7ae250bff1fc499280.  I don't
understand why we need to talk about an old corrected typo.

Sorry, 2 months ago.
