If you mean the command `erc-news', it only exists on master. It does
expect to find an existing etc/ERC-NEWS, but you can optionally download
and display the version from emacs.git by invoking it with C-u.

If you mean in Emacs 29, I'd say probably not. We also can't patch ERC
5.5 because GNU ELPA only allows :core packages to track master, which
is already at 5.6.

I guess you weren't able to try the version on HEAD (ERC 5.6-git). Some
of what you propose is more or less present in the new behavior.

Thanks and closing.
