I'm intrigued by the need of manual adaptation.

However my main point today is different:

Why our posts are not available neither at

https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=32599

not at

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/gnu.emacs.bug/SK-RO_OG_GQ/BmUzA-23AgAJ

?

This dosn't allow other users to express their opinion on the matter.
