bugs.mysql.com allows me to file public bug reports.

It's also possible to add private comments which oracle staff can see which are not public. Usually this is to provide information which may not be useful to share publicly but which may be relevant to the report concerned.

However, I may have a friend who I trust who I'd like to share these private comments. That may be co-workers but should probably not be that limited.

How to repeat:
Check and see you can't do this now.

Suggested fix:
I would like to be able to add a reference for each bug report: "share private comments with ..." and be able to provide either one or more email addresses or domains (e.g. @mydomain.com) and those people logged in and looking at the matching addresses would see the private comments, and those who are subscribed to changes would also get the private comments.

If this is possible I think it would be quite useful.

Thank you for the feature request.

After some discussion, we have chosen not to implement this feature request at this time.  As a result, I will now close this bug as "Won't fix".
