1) I can actually follow the original bug in linux distribution bug system - it doesn't dissappear
2) a link is normally posted on the original bug to point to the upstream...where I can normally go 
   also participate.

in openjkd case, there is no access to #1 and #2 is not possible/allowed since jira is not possible
to comment on :)
