This problem has been fixed in the development version. The fix
will be available in the next major software release. Thank you
for your bug report.

Since the latest release (0.1.6, yesteerday), generate_package_html fails when there is no NEWS file.

Octave's manual indicates that NEWS is an optional file, so this is a regression of the generate_html package.

Here is a patch that fixes the problem: the "NEWS" link is added if the NEWS file is present, and a warning is issued otherwise.
