Right. See also the bottom part of http://ccache.samba.org/repo.html.

It hasn't. Debian's 3.1.9-1 package is created from the released 3.1.9
source package (ccache-3.1.9.tar.bz2<http://www.samba.org/ftp/ccache/ccache-3.1.9.tar.bz2>),
not the git repo.

Perhaps the NEWS.txt file should say something about the extra features?

Yes, a continuously updated NEWS.txt would be good. I have been too lazy to
keep it updated between releases - I have typically added the new section
as part of the release process.
