today the bugs aren't in a private queue, all issues appear on bugs.sun.com
within a day, for example:


are incidents which haven't been picked up as bugs yet. This was done 
about a year ago to address the sense that incidents went
into a black hole if they were not reviewed in a timely manner.  

	To be clear the current model isn't ideal as the infrastructure
on which it is based doesn't provide the filtering necessary so that
it would be easy for developers to see a unified view, the goal is to
have that as part of the new system.

	There were some early ideas sent out in April which go into
more details:


looking at it today there are some terms that would need to be 
clarified when it comes to "Open JDK developer", which was
raised earlier on the thread.  Also I'm assuming that the rules
around if bugs should be triaged should depend on the project,
some may well not want any,
