Since the wiki

* doesn't say how to contact that engineer
* doesn't say how to work with them

that might be a hurdle too steep in some cases.

As the only contact given on the wiki is ops at openjdk, I assume it will 
get more than its fair share of test failures to forward through email 
chains in search of that engineer. That would be unfortunate.

Instead, I would suggest explicitly advising Comitters with test 
failures to forward them to the jdk-dev mailing list in search of an 
Oracle engineer.

Or, ideally, the system could simply send those e-mails announcing 
failures to the Committer with a CC: to jdk-dev, taking out the manual 
part of Oracle engineer search and forwarding e-mails around out of the
