Dear AUCTeX developers,

I didn't submit my previous bug report the right way (i.e. using M-x TeX-submit-bug-report), as I didn't find the instructions sufficiently clear.

Planning to report a bug I found the http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/mailing-lists.html page. There, I saw "address@hidden" and _didn't_ bother following the link to the "list information", as I thought, well, it's just the well-known mailman kind of page.

Later I did check that page (https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/bug-auctex) and found that you recommend reporting bugs with M-x TeX-submit-bug-report, which I then did. It would be helpful if this were explained on the homepage as well. (BTW I see that it _is_ explained in the info manual, which is good.)
