If I get it right, the backport approval process requires me to have a JBS user, which currently I don’t. 

Would you mind adding corresponding fix-request tags for 11u and 12u for me, please? Meanwhile I’ll also start a formal JBS user request.

And I’m also very sorry that in my initial e-mail, the underlying link for the bug was point a totally different entry, so the correct one is
