I'm not convinced of the wisdom of that. Anyone reporting a bug with
IcedTea that is not present in OpenJDK should be able to enter it in
IcedTea's Bugzilla: after all, how are they to know whether a bug is
caused by bad packaging or bad Classpath code? There's no reason not
to link IcedTea bugs to Classpath bugs if needs be. Also, from a
practical point of view, I'd like to keep all IcedTea bugs together in
