Not really.

If you look at the description of core-libs-dev and most other mailing 
lists, they serve for technical discussion of OpenJDK development in a 
respective area. They should not be used for other, non-technical 
discussions - that's what this list is for, for example.

So if you wanted to discuss ideas for a fix in a specific area before 
you started working on one, that would be just fine. In that case, 
please see the contributing guide at 
for the requirements and steps to take.

Just spamming various technical lists with bug reports in hope that 
someone else among the hundreds of subscribers files issues that you 
could easily just file yourself, on the other hand, would not be OK.

Not at all, no.

In that case your participation would be a net loss for this community, 
and I'd suggest reconsidering it, if that's all you're after.
