When I reported this problem with Bash last year, I looked at the Gnu
website for information on how to contribute and report bugs. And
although the man page is exactly what you show, the website still direct
it diferently - and maybe it is nearly the same I saw last year: "For
development sources, bug and patch trackers, and other information,
please see the Bash project page at"

I'll also point this in their mailing list.

Thank you both for these comments, Paul and Assaf.
