Please unblock package rdiff-backup

rdiff-backup is a sort of rsync-like backup tool. It happens that the
version that will be shipped in Bullseye (2.0.5) has a network protocol
that is incompatible with that of the version that was shipped in Buster
(1.2.8). The details are in https://bugs.debian.org/975270

What I thus did was to upload a 2.0.5 version to buster-backports, so
that people can safely independently upgrade the rdiff-backup package on
all their buster systems, before upgrading their systems to bullseye at
their convenience.

[ Reason ]
The changes proposed here is just to explain this in the NEWS file.

[ Impact ]
If the NEWS entry is not added, the users will have to google out why
they got their backup broken, or worse, not notice that their backup got

[ Tests ]
[ Risks ]
This is a documentation-only change.

[ Checklist ]
  [X] all changes are documented in the d/changelog
  [X] I reviewed all changes and I approve them
  [X] attach debdiff against the package in testing

+    The network protocol of versions 1 and 2 of rdiff-backup are incompatible.
+    This means that you must be running the same version (either 1 or 2) of
+    rdiff-backup locally and remotely. Since Buster ships version 1.2.8 and
+    Bullseye ships version 2.0.5, upgrading only the local system or only the

+    For conveniency, version 2.0.5 of rdiff-backup is available in the
+    buster-backports distribution, see https://backports.debian.org/
+    This allows to first upgrade only the rdiff-backup package on Buster
+    systems, and then independently upgrade systems to Bullseye at your
