How to find IBM's contributions?

I can only speak to the patches I've been involved with; currently the IBM employees post their webrevs for review to the public -dev lists and upon completion the webrevs are committed by an openJDK committer (who need not be an Oracle employee). IBM employees are expected to have their own openJDK committers in the near future. Essentially the process has been the same as for any community contributor upon first taking up with OpenJDK. The process is likely to be streamlined as IBM itself has more OpenJDK mentors within it's teams. This is true even within Oracle (and previously Sun), there's a mentoring and education process for new committers provided by established committers prior to full OpenJDK committer status.
