41ba061 [docs] Add release notes for wallet 'label' API. (John Newbery)
189e0ef [wallet] [rpc] introduce 'label' API for wallet (Wladimir J. van der Laan)

Pull request description:

Add label API to wallet RPC.

This is one step towards #3816 ("Remove bolt-on account system") although it doesn't
actually remove anything yet.

These initially mirror the account functions, with the following differences:

- These functions aren't DEPRECATED in the help
- Help mentions 'label' instead of accounts. In the language used, labels are
  associated with addresses, instead of addresses associated with labels. (unlike
  with accounts.)
- Labels have no balance
  - No balances in `listlabels`
  - `listlabels` has no minconf or watchonly argument
- Like in the GUI, labels can be set on any address, not just receiving addreses
- Unlike accounts, labels can be deleted.
  Being unable to delete them is a common annoyance (see #1231).
  Currently only by reassigning all addresses using `setlabel`, but an explicit
  call `deletelabel` which assigns all address to the default label may make

Nit: : => ., or remove uppercase If => if

Move the block between walletpassphrase and generate.

This is a duplicate (see 4 lines above).
You don't have to edit this file when updating a test unless there is a massive timing change from the previous version, which is obviously not the case here.

So it should look like:

{ "wallet",             "walletpassphrase",             walletpassphrase,             {"passphrase","timeout"} },
/** Account functions (deprecated) */
{ "wallet",             "getaccountaddress",            getlabeladdress,              {"account"} },
{ "wallet",             "setlabel",                     setlabel,                     {"address","label"} },
{ "generating",         "generate",                     generate,                     {"nblocks","maxtries"} },

Please rebase on top of

Almost, look at what core does, you are missing the empty lines as a separator.
