There are only two domains that are of interest here -- openjdk.java.net
(which we have traditionally been using) and openjdk.org (which we would
like to transition to, but things are moving slowly for this kind of
changes within Oracle). There is no openjdk.net nor java.org, so you
don't need to test those.
Skara is creating commits for OpenJDK projects with the form
<openjdk-id>@openjdk.org, so that is what you need to add to your github
profile to get commits connected to your profile.

The reason for this disconnect is, I assume, the fact that commits will

(if not "simple") to get openjdk.java.net mail working, than for
I assume the long-term goal here is to make the bots send mail using
<openjdk-id>@openjdk.org as well, and to get that MTA working. I believe
Tim is working as well as he can to push this forward, but this is an
unusual request within Oracle and that unfortunately makes it painful
