I don't think that would be something that the quarterly report would 
have to cover, as that's outside the OpenJDK infrastructure.

Yep, that sounds good.

Yeah - like I explained in 
the challenge here is that the connection between relationship between 
membership in the Adoption Group and Project Roles is rather vague, so 
counting the number of this Group's members that have been voted into a 
role on a Project would not necessarily be representative of typical 
experiences new developers have - rather then 'graduating' through this 
Group, I'd assume most of them would use this list as a 'service' to 
answer their immediate process, etc. questions, and then move on to 
concrete activities on the OpenJDK Projects of their concern, instead of 
spending the year or so that it takes to be active on this list to be 
voted a Group Member first.

So in other words, counting 'graduations' would under-count the number 
of developers this Group could help become productive OpenJDK Contributors.
