The towncrier output is slightly inconsistent in its usage of newlines between preview and release modes, and edits to the template don't seem to affect this. I manually added one newline and removed another for the 39.2.0 release to keep the formatting consistent; the new output review step is partially to catch things like this until we find a way to get towncrier to automatically get the formatting correct.
