Thanks for your answers, Joe and David. With that I managed to create my first PR. The one thing that is still unclear to me: Since I signed the OCA for an organization, it affects not one but many usernames that'll be changing over time. How does Oracle know what users are included?

Or is it a manual check each time one writes /covered in a PR?

Btw I attempted to provide additional information with the "/covered" comment to help Oracle find the right OCA, however the bridgekeeper bot didn't seem to like this [1]. Maybe this can be improved?
