I've just posted a patch for the NEWS file, and the HISTORY section has been there since July.

I think it does need to be mentioned in NEWS and a HISTORY section for locate would be a good idea.  I can fill in the history of relevant changes since findutils 4.0 but don't know much about the early history of findutils.

locate --max-database-age was added in 4.3.3, but never documented in NEWS. Also, is it worth giving locate.1 a HISTORY section?

Meanwhile, I fixed a redundant word in the error message.
