Allowing external people to subscribe to an issue (put an e-mail address 
and receive automatically all changes/comments on this issue) would not 
create any junk in JBS, but would already be useful for users to detect 
some changes of OpenJDK in impacting bugs (then download a weekly build 
and test). A followed bug would be less fire-and-forget, even if this is 
not solving problems for features (mailing-list?).
