I think that if the bugs system will be read-only for "regular developers", they will post their issues
on various mailing lists or won't post them anywhere at all, and in the end it will be significantly harder for everyone, including contributors
and Oracle employees, to keep track of issues.

Given that OpenJDK is a pretty large project with many moving parts, that would be a loss-loss situation for everyone, IMO.

My 2¢.--
