Request to allow anonymous user access to Jira.

I'd like to be able to access Jira without logging in.
Such anonymous access would have limited privileges (for example only able to view existing public issues).
I know such access has been requested before on this mailing list, but I don't recall any response on why it has not been provided.

The benefits of anonymous access to Jira are:
  1. Search engines can index the information in Jira.
  2. Lower barrier of entry for casual users to view the state of issues in Jira.

I don't really see any potential drawbacks to adding anonymous access to Jira.
