We (Apache Lucene developers) have experienced the frustrations described in +Uwe Schindler's excellent summary, where we are essentially pre-alpha testers for upcoming Java releases yet we cannot directly report bugs, comment on them, etc. Here's a great quote:

"The bug reporting was heavily criticized by attendees, especially because outsiders cannot open new reports in the JIRA Bug-Tracker of the OpenJDK Project. Additionally, it is impossible to use the “Watch”-Feature known from JIRA that would make it easier to follow changes. Andrew Haley promised to look into it soon. Still, Mark Reinhold is afraid this could slow down work on the project because users would open too many “useless” bug reports (“my Java Plug-in suddenly stopped working in Google Chrome!”). However, examples from well-known Open Source Projects of the Eclipse Foundation or Apache Software Foundation prove him wrong."
