It is currently a pseudo account. As described in JEP 357 [0] we use 
<openjdk-username>@openjdk.org as the author/committer email in git 
commits to signify that the author/committer is an OpenJDK Author [1], 
Committer [2] or Reviewer [3].

However, as described in my reply to Phil [4], we are slowly making 
progress towards making them real accounts.
