If we're talking about the bugtracker, then probably no.
I'm not aware of any bug tracker with a category for the OpenJDK web site,
fwiw. Bring the bugs along to this list, and we'll fix them together if 
we can.

The web site itself is not in the OpenJDK Mercurial repositories. Yeah, 
that's very awkward, and people trip up over that at least once when they 
set up a Group or a Project page, and then they move the more dynamic 
content that profits from being edited by many hands (or just more 
regularly) over to the wikis:

Please don't let that discourage you! I'd suggest starting off by looking at 
a Project page like and coming up
with a list of issues (information you find doesn't belong there, information
you're missing, presentation, etc.) you'd like to see fixed, and then we
can discuss how to fix them, either on this list, or (preferrably) on the 
JDK 7 Updates Project's mailing list.
