[Mpi-forum] Changelog question

Yes, of course, but I thought that the MPI_Count
ticket has only about 6 new routines, similar to the
two entries 17 and 18 on MPI-2.2 pages 594 and 595
about the MPI_DIST_GRAPH_... routines.
If a whole new main chapter is added, then
typically only one ticket is added,
without mentioning 20 routines.
