I'm sorry that you've misunderstood, but this is a commit message.
You should interpret it as instructions to be executed on the codebase
(like code), not prose intended for other people.  Code and commit
messages are never rude, condescending, disrespectful, or otherwise:
they're direct, terse, and precise instructions.

Oh, my apologies: don't you have one issue tracker/ mailing list for
one repository?

Could you direct me on how to instruct perlbug to send the issue to
the right tracker?
