Maybe you can speak better for the linux kernel world currently, but at
least in the Drizzle world, our current preferred method of recommending
anyone is based on existing contributions. i.e. code is what gets you
the interview and code is the interview. (at least for developers).
This has worked amazingly well in the short timeframe of the project.
For MySQL, which had a harder time keeping outside contributors (for a
number of reasons, several being directly the company's fault) we'd also
look at existing contributions to other free software projects.
