The problem is the user experience. An anonymous user browsing e.g. SANDBOX can click "CREATE
NEW ISSUE" and JIRA offers then a list of unrelated projects. In Bugzilla you could enter
your bug report and you were requested to login committing the issue. But here the usder is
stuck and does not know, why he suddenly does not find the project any longer. Not a single
hint, that he must register.
