OpenJDK bug database: DRAFT Developer Workflow

I'm defining requirements for the OpenJDK bug database [1].  As one
would guess, it's not easy.  We have more than 15 years of data,
process evolution, and supporting tools that we need to consider.
Opinions on the effectiveness of existing process and tools vary.
Many people with different roles (end-users, developers, quality,
release management, etc.) need to be able to access the system.

I've written a preliminary draft of what the pilot workflow for bugs
and RFEs might look like.  It is based on the existing bug system with
modifications to omit portions that aren't used.  There is no
requirement that we stick closely to this draft, though any changes
will need to consider the impact on data migration.  It still needs
quite a bit of work.

Please send feedback/comments to this mailing list.  I'll provide
regular updates as feedback is incorporated and I fill in other
sections of the document.
