I tried to report the following with the glibcbug script,
but the mail was rejected with the following error message.

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

      pipe to | /usr/lib/gnats/queue-pr -q
        generated by address@hidden
        (ultimately generated from address@hidden)
        local delivery failed

So I send my report "manually".

I hope this helps,

        The "Integers" page of the libc info manual describes the
        the types int8_t, int16_t, ... from the stdint.h header file.
        But these types are missing from the type index.  The entries
        starting with "i" are just

           * iconv_t:        Generic Conversion Interface.
           * imaxdiv_t:      Integer Division.
           * ino64_t:        Attribute Meanings.
           * ino_t:          Attribute Meanings.

        As the index contains many other types with the _t suffix,
        I think the integer types should be included, too.
        Read the manual again.
        Add the types to the type index.
