Faulty footprint in standard library (5.1.9 and 5.99)

Dear KiCAD Developers and Librarians,

Something funny happened a few hours ago on my evening lecture on PCB Design. One of my students showed me in the Q&A part his project where he used a CR2032 Battery holder, which was giving him a DRC Error (Can not find segment (x1,y1-x2,y2) Courtyard not closed shape). I thought, he made an error when designing it himself but he assured me that he had taken it from the standard library.
I confirmed it by testing it myself under 5.1.9 (and it isn’t corrected under 5.99)
Long story short:, here is the culprit with the corresponding message:

and btw, the 1x23mm isn’t any better!

Has anyone else discovered it? What is the procedure for reporting ?

I see that you’ve already done so, but for posterity the way to report it is to open an issue here https://gitlab.com/kicad/libraries/kicad-footprints/-/issues

I posted the same issue on discord and @craftyjon gave me the link to the Gitlab Issue tracker

I saw the new issue on Gitlab:

A bit more testing gives a similar error for all these 6 footprints:
BatteryHolder_Keystone_103_1x20mm
BatteryHolder_Keystone_104_1x23mm
BatteryHolder_Keystone_105_1x2430
BatteryHolder_Keystone_106_1x20mm
BatteryHolder_Keystone_107_1x23mm
BatteryHolder_Keystone_3001_1x12mm

I will add them to your bug report on Gitlab.
