Question about submitting bugs

I've got a meta-question regarding filing compiler bug reports...

Compiler questions and possible bug reports are often posted to this list,
but this list is obviously not meant to be a general triage area for bug
reports from the entire Java community, so I'm hesitant to post occasional
issues that crop up here.

I've also noticed that the JDK bug submission form on doesn't seem to really work any more... I've
submitted a couple of bug reports there lately but never heard anything
back (example
I have another one now but don't want it to be lost like the others.

It also doesn't seem possible for mere mortals to create accounts on

So what is the correct procedure for non-compiler-developers to
productively report suspected compiler issues?
