I don't have a clue, and I don't personally think it matters. But I suspect the 
latter is the majority. At least because very few contributors have a chance to 
contribute to something OpenStack-wide, while many people get assigned to work 
on a project or a few of them.

That being said, I don't believe that the "OpenStack vs $PROJECT" question is as 
important as it may seem from this thread :)
