Those sites are for Oracle JDK bug reporting. The first thing such a 
report via those sites would receive is a request to see if the issue 
also reproduces on Oracle JDK.

I don't know either but I assumed that as AdoptOpenJDK gives an explicit 
bug reporting URL in their builds:

# If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:

that there would be a suitable process behind that for dealing with the 
bug report.

The OpenJDK mailing lists are not a bug submission system.

As I said I would have expected someone on the adopt side to open a JBS 
issue directly, after suitable investigation of reproducability.
