How to find IBM's contributions?

I worked with WebSphere for a long time and IBM's JDK class files (via the
source code) were very interesting to read. I find it fascinating to see how
companies diverge and converge on similar bugs. I wonder if any of those
fixes in IBM's JDK will backport into OpenJDK? This project is all a very
big and exciting experiment on large software development. So as I read the
patches as they go by, it's interesting to see who is contributing what.
