Phil just pointed out the following text on the signup page for our

    PRIVACY NOTICE: Bugzilla is an open bug tracking system. Activity on
    most bugs, including email addresses, will be visible to the
    public. We recommend using a secondary account or free web email
    service (such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or similar) to avoid
    receiving spam at your primary email address.

I'd like to suggest we remove the final sentence.  I don't think we
want Sun engineers to be using non-Sun e-mail addresses -- especially
secondary addresses which they might not read very often.
