The report was fine, it was the followups (it happened again with your
previous message). Can you edit the addresses manually if you reply
again? I think there was some temporary glitch with the initial
routing of this report that has probably caused these issues:


(probably this should not explicitly be going to
address@hidden, but we've started now)

Yes, except I don't know if "/bin/echo" is always "/bin/echo" on all
the wacky systems Emacs supports. "printf" would be better still. But
since no-one can define exactly what "portable" means for the Emacs
build process, I try to only add constructs already used.

Huh? You're saying that your problem, which happened in bootstrapping
a fresh checkout, has been fixed by a change to the update-elclist
rule that only runs _after_ bootstrapping? AFAICS, that's impossible,
but never mind...
