> In terms of build support, you might want to make it easy to hook into the openjdk build and distribution system that Henri Gomez has put together here:

I'll send him a note, JavaFX should be co-bundled with JRE builds, but I could imagine OpenJDK builds don't co-bundle, but it would be awesome if they did.

> There are still some jira issues which give permission violations when you try to look at them.  Is it possible to limit the jira issues which have restricted permissions to those which are unresolved security issues and to allow anybody to view jira cases without signing up for a jira account and logging in?

I'm not sure why we don't already allow un-authenticated users from browsing JIRA. It seems odd because we should want Google indexing the thing and so forth. I've put in a question to Brian and Kevin to find out what the story on that is. I'm not comfortable with un-authenticated editing of a JIRA issue (darn spam bots), but certainly browsing should be allowed it seems.
