I think that this is clear to everybody. The point is that Jira is  
extremely flexible in configuring access policies and two instances can be  
very different in terms of usability. With Jira/JBS I was referring to the  
two instances and their currently configured access policies. A few people  
pointed out in the previous emails about these differences.

In other words, consolidating to JBS is fine: but, as many expressed  
doubts, does it mean that the JavaFX component will be subject to the same  
configuration of JBS? Or is it possible to have its access policy, as a  
component, to stay the same? What about having the access policy of JBS  
more open, such as the current JIRA for OpenJFX?

I suppose these are more legal issues, or internal Oracle policy issues,  
than technical issues.
