Description:
There are obsolete addresses for bug-reporting in mysqlaccess.sh and mysql-test/README

ftp://support.mysql.com/pub/mysql/secret/ (doesn't work)
bugs@lists.mysql.com (still works, but should not be the primary address)
bugs@mysql.com (obsolete)

How to repeat:
$ egrep -r '(bugs.*@.*mysql.com|ftp.*support.*mysql.com)' .
./scripts/mysqlaccess.sh:         ."BUGs can be reported by email to bugs\@mysql.com\n";
./scripts/mysqlaccess.sh:         ."BUGs can be reported by email to <a href=mailto:bugs\@mysql.com>bugs\@mysql.com</a><BR>\n"
./scripts/mysqlaccess:         ."BUGs can be reported by email to bugs\@mysql.com\n";
./scripts/mysqlaccess:         ."BUGs can be reported by email to <a href=mailto:bugs\@mysql.com>bugs\@mysql.com</a><BR>\n"
./mysql-test/README:archive to ftp://support.mysql.com/pub/mysql/secret/ and send a mail
./mysql-test/README:to bugs@lists.mysql.com

Suggested fix:
Replace by http://bugs.mysql.com

"mysql-test/README" and "scripts/mysqlaccess.sh" now refers
to http://bugs.mysql.com/

This will be corrected in 5.5.36, 5.6.16 and 5.7.4

Note in 5.5.36 5.6.16, 5.7.4 changelogs.

Some scripts displayed out-of-date information regarding where to report bugs.
