I've used M-x gnus-bug RET to report a bug to, and while
it appears on the local group gnus-bugs (?) on the NNTP server at along with several other threads, it would appear that
those other threads have been injected automatically by other channels
(apparently a bug reporting system, since the subject lines contain bug

It does not appear like the bug channel fed directly by the gnus-bug
command is actually being read by anybody.

It has now been about two weeks that message-yank-original has stopped
