Please add explanation to perlbug, what happens after someone submits
a bug-report or a thank-you note.


Today I tried to send a message using perlthanks but I was not sure if
it was really sent, I also sent an e-mail to

I have not received any feedback on either of those.
After about 6 hours I saw the one that I manually e-mailed
appear in the archives of

I assume it was held for manual approval.

I don't know if the other one has ever reached the moderation-queue or
has not even left my computer and I don't know what would happen if I
filed a bug-report.

It would be nice if there was some feedback, or at least
some explanation in the docs
on what happens to the thank-you notes and the bugs after
I ran perlthanks or perlbug.

Do they enter a moderation-queue?
Can I see the queue?
Approx how long till someone looks at it?
Where can I check if it got approved?

Thank you!
