I think this mail raises a good point.

We are very protective of our bugs, maybe it's the time to reconsier jira 
rights now that we have the Qt Project in full swing :)

I think it would be great if we could get a group of bug triagers started, for 
KDE for example that leads to fewer stale bugs and new contributors that 
discover they can fix bugs while triaging them.

In order to enable that we would actually have to start giving jira rights to 
people. I don't think there is much reason to expect people would be mis-using
