Package: elogind
Version: 255.4.1-1debian2
Severity: normal

Elogind 255 changed the implicit default for suspend;
it was 'deep' until 252, now it's 's2idle'.
This is documented nowhere, except if one reads Yamakuzure
reply in https://github.com/elogind/elogind/issues/280
and it took me a while [1] to understand that the state where
the screen goes black but power led is still on and fans
keep spinning is not a bug in elogind.

I think this change is worth a NEWS entry, with an example
that explains how to revert to the previous default.
I suggest something like

  This version of elogind changes the default Mode for suspend,
  before elogind 255 it was suspend2ram, now it's suspend2idle.
  To revert to the previous default you can add a line with
  in elogind's sleep.conf; for example
  cat /etc/elogind/sleep.conf.d/20-suspend.conf
