     Please fill in all required fields; in particular, make sure 
     that your name, email address, and the summary description
     are correct.
-    b) Submit your bug report by electronic mail. To do this, you need to
-    * Generate a bug report template by running the file
-      latexbug.tex through LaTeX.
-    * Fill in the spaces in the generated template file. Please note that
-      the reporting language is *English*, irregardless of the fact that
-      the address you are sending the bug report to might not be in an
-      English speaking country. Reports received in a language other than
-      English might not be understandable to the person currently
-      looking at bug reports!
-    * Include all necessary information, especially a complete input
-      file, a complete transcript file, and all other files used (if they
-      are not standard).
-      Please check carefully to ensure that any non-standard files are
-      essential to the bug; and remember that we cannot debug files not
-      supplied by us.
-      Any such non-standard files should be included in a `filecontents'
-      environment at the start of your input file!  This allows us to
-      run your test file without a lot of manual preparation; this is 
-      essential since we have to deal with many reports, not just with
-      the one written by you.
-    * Please note that it is important to make the input file as short
-      as possible since this will enable us to find and fix the error
-      quickly.  It also helps us because then we can often use it as a test
-      file for future releases.
-      We would expect most files to be less than 60 lines, and very
-      rarely to be longer than 100 lines.
-      This can often be achieved by defining a command to be some
-      arbitrary text and using this several times if it is necessary
-      to generate longer bits of text.
-   Error reports concerning UNCHANGED versions of CORE LaTeX files
-   which are less than five years old should be sent by E-mail to:
-     latex-bugs at latex-project.org
-You will receive an acknowledgement by E-mail containing at the
-beginning of its subject line a problem reference of the form
-category/number:, e.g. latex/1234:. Please use this subject line in ALL
-further E-mails concerning the problem. Otherwise your reply will be
-categorized and filed separately from the original.
-If you think you have found a bug or some problematic behavior that
-has been present in LaTeX for a long time (e.g., it was already in
-LaTeX 2.09) you are, of course, equally welcome to report this, using
-the above procedure.  However, please note that we will normally not
-change layout decisions made in the LaTeX standard classes (which are
-derived from their 2.09 counterparts); nor will we change layout
-decisions or the behaviour of core commands, even when these are
-questionable from a typographic point of view, since such changes
-would make thousands of documents invalid.  See also the file
-ltnews07.tex with regard to this policy.
