Your message isn't really relevant to the help-debbugs mailing list, but
with my list moderator hat on I approved it anyway.

I'll assume by "make management system" you meant "bug management
system". As a reporter of bugs, you don't need to know how it works.

In case you did not know, Eric Blake is a coreutils developer, and is an
extremely diligent correspondent to the coreutils bug list. (This is
obvious even to me, as only an occasional reader of bug-coreutils). You
should calm down and trust him, and the other coreutils developers, to
do the right thing. In particular, you should not immediately open a
duplicate bug report if your first is closed, and you should not
immediately reopen a bug that a developer has closed. You should calmly
and clearly explain why you disagree, and then wait for the maintainers
to followup. There is no need to reopen a bug to keep discussing it.
