Bug tracking system remains the same - http://bugs.sun.com/
Bug reports and RFE usually go through evaluation process (evaluator tries to 
reproduce the issue, checks for duplicate, etc.) and the put into the database.
Alternative way is discuss bug/rfe in this list and I'll add a record by myself 
(it would be faster way)

You may start right now, but sending the request be ready to fix/implement it ;)

Main trouble with port controls is the controls in are user-oriented and it's 
hard to find appropriate control programmatically.
Issue with multiple port of the same type is required some API changes - I hope 
we'll find elegant solution.
