Question about submitting bugs

Archie, All,

We understand that there is a major communication issue. However, we are 
on a solution where the submitter of a bug can provide additional 
information using
JI-xxxxxxx or JDK-xxxxxxx reference. And, general users should able to
add comments to an existing bug using JDK-xxxxxxx reference. We are hoping
to roll out the feature soon.

In the mean time we will add 'information about how to search a bug' in 
the initial
acknowledgement email.

Hope this helps..
