Talk to an OpenJDK API or screen scrape off the official site, get a Y/N/Don't know response. Patches to OpenJDK can't be accepted unless this value is Y

    For things like hackdays we've allowed people to submit small patches without a signed OCA. For example small warnings fixes. I think we should also have a way of approving a patch from a non-OCA person, manually at the request of a moderator.

    Looks like we'll have to screen scrape to see if folks have signed the OCA, however that page does not list hte OpenJDK username, it lists the java.net username (so we need to make sure when we create web revs that we don't pull in the wrong username by accident)

    If there is any way of using an API as opposed to screen scraping, I'd go for that!

    Have a look at the pull review screen - you should be able to wire up the OCA into the user details section. Bonus points for also adding it into the email!
