Your quoting is horrible; you repeated Achim's comments without adding
any '>' nesting,

Then used a '-- ' line, which sane mail clients treat as the end of the
email and start of the signature, and only then added your content.
Thunderbird, in particular, refuses to include signatures by default
when replying to a message; and hitting 'ctrl-a' then reply to at least
paste all of your text then loses the formatting of your message, making
it very difficult to reply to you, as shown here:

At any rate, in answer to your question:

awk --help | tail -n10

points you to the manual for how to report upstream bugs; if you don't
like info, the same data can be found here:

(in general, ANY good program will include instructions for how to reach
upstream in its --help output - of course, not all programs are at the
same level of goodness in this regards)
