dear sir or madam ---

this error still exists as of 1959z, just a few minutes ago.

while researching the mailing list archives for the release bug,
   i decided to subscribe to -bugs.
i clicked on what i thought was the link and
   was taken from the -bugs page to the -ports page.
going back to the -bugs page, i inspected the link more closely.
this caused me to look at the html source.

i find that the anchor for the -ports page is terminated,
   not with "</a>", but with "</p>".
the offending location is easily found
   by searching for the string "ports</p>",
   which is unique in the page.

i confess to having smiled.
of course,
   the concept of having a bug on the -bugs page may be an inside joke,
   just to see who is paying attention.
if this is indeed the case, i heartily join in the merriment.
