The program was created when we launched in June 2005.  The first code 
contribution was offered by Cyril Plisko just after launch and 
integrated two weeks later by Dan Mick.  The history is captured in the 
request-sponsor table (Cyril's first contribution is at the top of the 
'Fix Integrated' section).

I don't know how the number compares because we've been focused on 
better enabling contributions here.  And the Sponsor Program is only one 
way to contribute to OpenSolaris.  Contributors also directly 
participate in and lead projects on opensolaris.org, and we don't 
currently have a way to produce metrics around that participation.
