My intention was to encourage users to report bugs to both, Oracle and Illumos. It's possible that Oracle engineers pay attention to the Illumos bug database, but I expect that for legal reasons the will not look at Illumos code that has any new copyright notices relative to Oracle code. The simplest way for Oracle engineers to avoid all possible legal problems is to simply ignore at least the Illumos source repositories, possibly more. I'm speculating, sure; I might be wrong. As for good will, I'm certain that there is, at least at the engineer level, and probably beyond. But that doesn't mean that there will be bug parity, much less feature parity.
