For these closed bugs, I think we should create a public bug for the 
general JDK community. Maybe we can standardize on a format so it's easy 
to search? E.g., the title of the bug should be

     Public information for JDK-1234567 <original bug title>

And maybe we can program JIRA to automatically redirect to the public 
bug (if the original bug has a link to the public bug, and the title 
matches the pattern). Or maybe add a new type of "public-info" to the links.
