Just on this point. Bugs submitted via that get moved to 
the JDK project in JBS show up as being reported by "Webbug Group". 
There was a short period of time when the systems were initially linked 
up where moving issues caused the JIRA Reporter field to be set to 
whoever moved the issue. That was very annoying for anyone moving an 
issue too. I don't know if this is what got your colleague's goat but it 
has been fixed for a long time. As to why bugs show up as being reported 
by "Webbug Group" then I don't know, but I could imagine getting into 
non-technical issues around information use when moving names and email 
addresses between systems.
