I think you are doing just fine, thank you.  There's always some
learning curve, of course.  CONTRIBUTE should tell you enough, and you
can study the log messages by veterans to pick up the spirit.

The "inaccurate" part in my message related not to your wording (which
was fine, AFAICT), but to the fact that the important part of your fix
was to call save-excursion in the described case, not the part that
set the buffer (which was actually a no-op).

It should have, but it looks like it didn't for some reason.

Doing that for a bug that should be closed can never do any harm, even
if it was already closed.  (You also don't need to CC both NNN@ and
NNN-done@, as the message gets recorded by the tracker even if you
only use the latter.)

Thanks.
