Hi Joe

Thanks for your reply. I was aware of the JBS' public availability, but 
mistakenly interpreted "externalization" to mean "self-service account 
creation". So what I meant to ask if/when there are plans to support 
self-service account creation. However, upon reading the overview 
document, I actually no longer feel it's a necessity and agree that the website is still a reasonable way to submit bugs.

With what I know now, the main problem is that I was using the search on in attempts to find out the status of my reports. The 
search on never found any of my bug reports. However, I 
just tried the JBS search & it does find them. Moreover, the additional 
functionality of the JIRA search (user-friendly filters & the JQL + RSS 
feed views) seems to allow me to do everything I wanted: tracking the 
conversion of bug reports to JDK- issues (by filtering on the "webbug" 
label) and watching bugs (by filtering on the bug id + updated date).

Thanks again, Anthony
