JDK-8025128 and How to comment/proceed on issue I have reported ?

I got some questions on a specific issue but also on how to actually contribute bug reports to OpenJDK...

1) I open a bugreport against http://bugreport.sun.com/bugreport/ (with my java.net username)
    The last page of this gives no link, no info besides "we will get back to you"

2) I receive a mail saying bug has been opened with an ID that is nowhere to be found and suggest to manually search for bug
    on bugs.sun.com (you can see details on https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBIDE-15494)

3) I ask on twitter and @robilad (Dalibor Topic) tells that the real id is actually https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8025128
    and what is mentioned in mail is an internal id. (he promises to follow up on getting the mail received in #2 fixed to be more clear)

4) Now https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8025128 gets fixed in main Java 8, but not Java 7 and I want to ask if that is intentional - but I have no way to comment on this issue.

Thus two questions:

A) Where do I comment/get info on if JDK-8025128 will be backported to an update for Java 7 so createTempFile doesn't break existing applications that works fine with any previous JDK 5, 6 and 7 releases.

B) Is the "workflow" above really expected ? i.e. why can't I as reporter comment on the jira or even actually get the link tot the jira that was opened when reporting the issue.

Thank you,
