Correct, everything tells you it is part of Emacs.  Then one sends a report and 
start sending in in a long winded road to find the appropriate channel.

You look at "Emacs Asking for help" and "Emacs Reporting bugs" and you get only 
two things
help-gnu-emacs@gnu.org and bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org.  Have been following 
discussions here
and people herd together telling others they are doing everything backwards. 
And insisting
everything is fine, makes serious people not happy at all.  I do not want to 
hurt anyone,
but there exists a wall between maintainers and users who basically use Gnu 
Tools to do
something else.
