I don't think we can combine this, but I hope to be able to relax the 
requirements to become an Author a little. The current guidelines are 2 
sponsored contributions [1].

Pending appointment as an Author, it isn't hard to submit a bug via . If there is a test case, it usually gets 
moved to the JDK project within a day or so (and I can move them sooner, 
if needed). The bigger bother is that you can't comment in JBS on a bug 
you didn't create, but once the bug is there, you can work on it in 
GutHub and/or send email to the list. I'll also add any comments from 
contributors who are not yet Authors to any bug report.
