I think that is pretty much what happens when you file a bug against the kernel 
in a Linux distribution's bug system, and the conversation gets moved into the 
kernel bugzilla.

Reading the different distributions different instructions on filing kernel bugs [0]
can be quite enlightening on how 'closed' real-world open source development on large 
projects can be in practice to newcomers. That's why conversations are important. ;)

That is a fine suggestion. Do you think a partial map of Component/Release/etc. items to one of 
http://mail.openjdk.java.net/mailman/listinfo would be a fair start?

[0] File it in our distribution bug tracker. File it in the upstream kernel bug tracker. Post it to one
of those kernel vger lists, and you'll hopefully know which one. Send it to the maintainer directly.
Following this format. Or that. Do this. Do something else. Wait. Try again. Repeat as often
as you need. Or like. ;)
