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 .
Pending appointment as an Author, it isn't hard to submit a bug via
http://bugreport.java.com/ . 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.
