I've just started using Alire, and I've run into a minor bug in gnatcoll
described here: https://github.com/AdaCore/gnatcoll-core/issues/62

That issue was posted on 14 Apr 2022, and there is no response yet. So
I'm wondering - what is the correct bug report for Alire crates? And
what can I do to get this bug fixed?

Since AdaCore's official policy (1) is that the community release of
GNAT and associated products is done thru Alire, this seems to be an
important concern.

The bug has been fixed in the development versino, so the fix for the
Alire crate is to simply release a new version of the crate, which only
the author of the crate can do. Is that only done once per year, as for
the previous Community releases? I would hope not; part of the point of
splitting the releases into crates is to allow separate releases of each
crate.

<rant> There's no date on 1. How can you have a policy statement with no
effective date!? </rant>

There is a date (Jun 02, 2022), hidden away in the image at the top of
the post.
