Actually, we couldn't find the user in openjdk or internal, not in the namespace. The census repository name can indicate whether it is openjdk or internal.

I think "has no OpenJDK user name" is better than "has no openjdk.org user name", so we would need to do something about that if we were to use that field. A "openjdk.org user name" sounds like something you could use on the home page, which is not a thing. The accounts we are talking about are commonly referred to as "OpenJDK user name" and I think we should stay with that terminology.
