I faced a bash bug regarding completion few weeks ago. I tried to send it to the list bug-bash (a) gnu.org on March, 1st. Few days after, some messages where posted everyday but mine did not appear so I tried the newsgroup gnu.bash.bug. Nothing again...
Then I learnt that gnu.org got problems on their ML servers at this time, so I posted it again on March, 6. I got no news on this message since but new bugs or replies are posted everyday.
What should I do now ? Does anyone know a reliable way to report a bash bug ?
The bug itself is quite simple : When some directories (or link to directories) are present in some directory listed in $PATH, they are returned as if they were commands. The following will complete to foo[SPACE] as if foo was a command :
# mkdir /usr/bin/foo # fo[TAB]
Update: My mail from March 06 finally appeared on the ML on March 23 ! (but not on the newsgroup where I still was waiting for it)
