JavaFX JIRA issues moving to JBS

A crazy out-there suggestion...

Could OpenJDK work in partnership with stackoverflow on this through via
either a new tag - e.g.[javafx-possible-bug] or a whole new stackoverflow

IMHO forums aren't the best way to work through coding problems, it's just
unorganised noise, the stackoverflow structured
question/answer/comment/vote approach is much better suited.... poor
quality questions (bug reports) will automatically get culled by the
crowd, sscce questions are encouraged, better community involvement
