JavaFX JIRA issues moving to JBS

I will also add a suggestion that I think would be reasonable.  Take
advantage of the OTN forum.  Anyone without a JBS account could be asked to
post their first bug report to the forum.  If it's not a bug, the forum
community can help with the issue.  The forum community can also help
people learn to write a good bug report.

If someone submits a decent quality bug report to the forum, they could be
invited to use JBA.  The threshold could be more than one good bug report
to the forum if needed.  That gives new users and entry point into the
community and it filters out most of the noise on the actual bug tracker.

You could probably even come up with a strategy for letting the community
nominate people for JBS invites so the developers wouldn't have to sift
through the forums looking for users that would make good JBS participants.
