As far as I understand the process, it's no so easy to integrate other 
open-source code to OpenJDK. Code author needs to sign up SCA before the code 
can be integrated (otherwise it will be impossible to port the change into 
SunJDK). In most of open-source projects it's difficult to determine authors, 
often open-source projects contains code from other open-source projects.

So you can contribute to OpenJDK your own code, but you can't contribute any 
open-source code.
