Thanks for setting this up. A quick question before I start using this.

It says "Please review the Terms of Use". This is the first bugzilla
instance I know that comes with a four page legal requirements document
before usage. I started printing them out and reviewing them as
requested but they seem somewhat odd. They require signing over rights
to Collabnet, O'Reilly and Sun of any source code posted, can be changed
at any time without notice, so you will have to review them each time
you file a new bug, and any legal disputes need to be fought in a
foreign country at the other side of the world. They all seem a bit out
of place for the OpenJDK community usage, I suspect they were
copy/pasted from some unrelated project. Can we get rid of them?
