'Contributor X' - is a person that typically did not give consent to be
tracked. That's the problem I mentioned before.
In general, though, I think that such tracking would be just a huge
waste of time, based on data at hand.
(query on OpenJDK mailing lists archived at Markmail with the exception
of distro-pkg-dev for threads where there is a diff or patch attached to
an e-mail and the e-mail does not come from someone @oracle.com ) leads
me to believe that in less than a handful of cases in 2015 a thread
ended with someone sending in a patch and not getting a reply.
That's across dozens of mailing lists and thousands of messages.

When an OCA is processed, a new Contributor gets a message that points
them to someone who can answer their questions about contributing (e.g.
me), asks them if they have been working with someone within the OpenJDK
community already, points them to the contribution guide and mailing
lists, and encourages them to introduce themselves on the discuss list.
Obviously, someone deliberately skipping step 0 of the contributing
guide at http://openjdk.java.net/contribute/ would not see that message,
but, as a wise philosopher once said, "people are people". Following
instructions is not everyone's cup of tea.  ;)
