Description Julien Gabel 2005-04-14 11:20:14 UTC
	The FreeBSD article 'problem-reports' says that there exists two methods to submit a followup: either use the
followup link on the individual PR's web page, or just mail it to <bug-followup@FreeBSD.org>. I think the incoherence
come from the fact that the @email found on the individual PR's web page actually is <freebsd-gnats-submit@FreeBSD.org>
which is different than <bug-followup@FreeBSD.org>.

Fix: 

Because i don't which email recipient is the good one (better one?), i don't know which of the two parts must be
adjusted: the bottom part of individual PRs, or the problem-reports article.
How-To-Repeat: 	Compare the information found at: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/problem-reports/pr-followup.html
and the link provided at the foot of the page at, for example: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/58154

The bug-followup address is an alias for freebsd-gnats-submit.  It doesn't
really matter which one you use.

I prefer the first one, since bug-followup@ is more friendly to us human
earthlings than some obscure gnats-dependent alias.  The bug-followup address
is easier to remember, because it matches the functionality of the alias
(followup/reply to a bug report).

Ok, thank you for this subtlety :)

So in this case, maybe that the very little attached patch will be enough
to adjusts this point.  Thanks.

State Changed
From-To: open->closed

Should be fixed now.  I changed the address that is displayed at the web 
output of query-pr.cgi to bug-followup@FreeBSD.org 

The change may take a while to become visible (the next web site build should 
be in a few hours).
