I think Andrew was referring to  This 
bugzilla instance was set up to track patch contributions until a more 
permanent bug tracking solution could be developed/deployed.  That's 
where we are now.  bugs.o.j.n is still the place to submit/track 
patches, and I expect data from that bugzilla instance will be migrated 
to the new system.

The expectation was that patch submissions should be made visible by the 
submitter and discussed on the project team's mailing list.

bugs.o.j.n was not supposed to track bugs, although some people 
submitted bugs without patches, and which obviously didn't gain much
