If they made it public fine - although building a database of that
requires care. That was my point. You need specific permission of the bug
reporter. Given bug reporters may have personal reasons (including 'works
at Microsoft') and business ones (from 'company policy' to 'three letter
agency') for not wanting the information public.

No: The Signed-off-by in GIT references the 1.1 contributor agreement
which specifically deals with that case.
