That's probably because:

* You can STILL only use it to post patches, not report bugs.  It
never moved on to the later stages that were planned.
* Most of them are ignored (though the JAXP ones seem to be a happy
exception to this norm)
* The bug IDs can't be used to commit (see the first point) so you
need an Oracle bug ID anyway, which I usually request from the Oracle
dev. who reviews the patch.  Seems to be much quicker for them than

It would be nice to see some, if not all, these things fixed, but
that's why I guess you're seeing low bug reporting in there.
