Some of it already made it into the updated [1] docs, 
but I'm sure it can be improved. Most of what I sent is transitional 
information aimed at existing contributors who have outstanding pull 
requests or who have an OpenJDK ID (i.e., Author, Committer, or 
Reviewer). That shouldn't go into the docs, since it will be outdated soon.

Maybe the following could be added to the CONTRIBUTING docs?

If there are other things that could be done to make it more clear, we 
could also do that.
