They do appear on gcc-bugs unless someone has broken this recently - what
doesn't appear is bugs that are too big, and the pseudo-bugs in "pending"
generated by broken messages. GNATS is broken in that generating messages
for changes and follow-ups to bugs is the responsibility of the front end
rather than the GNATS system itself (leading to the mess with having both
gcc-bugs and gcc-prs - hopefully gcc-prs can die with Bugzilla) but new
bugs still go through a central system where the numbers are assigned and
messages sent out.
