Future of JavaFX

I wonder why I was able to jointly assign my copyright with a lot of other
open source projects without having to sign papers, sent them in by fax,
wait for a written agreement, and pray to get a JIRA account... ;-)

See, I talked to a real lot of former JavaFX contributors in the past weeks
(visited some European JUGs in 2015), and *virtually everybody* told me that
he is really unsatisfied with the fact that he cannot directly file to JIRA
anymore or AT LEAST vote and comment on existing tickets. Is the JavaFX team
clear about how many contributors you lost by that policy? I really wonder
whether you see the reality there outside of Oracle. People stopped
reporting bugs! This is a real problem for JavaFX. You should act. Now.

"Like many other open-source communities, the OpenJDK Community requires 
Contributors to jointly assign their copyright on contributed code." as 
http://openjdk.java.net/contribute/ wisely says.

There is no good reason to change that.
