You can see your mail as it was received at:;mbox=yes;bug=5996

Sorry, I know nothing about "git send-email". Things should work fine
if you just hit followup/reply-to-all in a normal mail client.

You can reply to either bug-coreutils or address@hidden and it should
work fine. Using the latter makes life easier. If you reply to
bug-coreutils, in order to work out the bug number we need either "Re:
bug####" in the subject, or a "Re:" prefix at the start of the subject
and a References: or In-Reply-To: header pointing to the original
report (this is a somewhat experimental feature).

If none of those attempts to guess a bug number work, you end up
creating a new bug report. The package is guessed from the To: header.
Currently, this expects only a single To: header, and looks at the
last if there are more than one. Your second To: header did not match
a maintainer address, so you ended up in the default package, which
was emacs (now I will try to improve this part.
