Yes, but I have always considered such bug sites as un-indexed by and
invisible to search engines, like PM/DM's on forums and Facebook etc.
Apparently I was wrong..

Bug-tracking systems of most (all?) free and open source software are public.

If in doubt, try opening any bug report in another browser or "Private mode".
If it is readable for you, then it is readable for search engine crawler.

Yes, but the attachements are not really readable by me directly, and neither do they need to be to the robots. Finding info about the bugs on Google is fine, but as attachments are not really part of the page content of those bug pages I don't think it should be made available for indexing by crawlers.

Of course pages may provide <meta name="Robots">, but it's only up to crawler authors if they comply these. One search engine will, another will not. The
most popular, Google, currently does comply to these.

Exactly - and as most people use Google it would prevent most people from seeing it.
