I'm not sure which list you are referring to by "BNU emacs list" - do
you mean the emacs-devel list or the emacs bug list (same as
report-emacs-bug)? In any case, I don't think you should report bugs on
emacs-devel (when people do, they are typically asked to submit a bug
report. With respect to sending it to the emacs bug list (or using
report-emacs-bug), I think you should probably only do this when your
reporting a bug with the org mode bundled with emacs (just my opinion,
not policy of course). In any rate, any bug reported to the emacs bug
list just sits in the emacs bug tracker until someone sends it on to
this list and it gets added to the org list of bugs on orgmode.org. .
