Okay, here's what happened:
1. I found a bug in Guix that I wanted to report.
3. That page directed me to "submit your patches or email
firstname.lastname@example.org to open a new issue." There were no further
instructions, so I guessed that sending an email with the body "help"
would return one with instructions on how to file an actual bug
4. Instead, that filed a bug reporting "help."
Perhaps this bug could be repurposed into one about improving the
instructions for reporting bugs. :) Now I'll file the real bug
