Be aware that before being appointed as author, one is not even allowed to reply to questions related to those issues one has created via the web interface. In my eyes that?s at least an unnecessary hurdle, maybe even a deterrent.

Most definitely. Perhaps by opening up the OpenJDK JIRA issue tracker
a bit. I myself have submitted a few bugs, but could not contribute
further because I don't have access.

I found contribution to Jenkins much easier because it was easy to
create a user account on their JIRA issue tracker.
