As others have mentioned use the project and community aliases
appropriate for the fix you are doing to get codereview. If you can't
find an appropriate alias try the opensolaris-code alias.

I'd be a little stronger than that. Fixing typos in comments doesn't
improve the quality of the resulting binaries and given the high a
process burden while we are still using the sponsor system to me it just
isn't a good use of a sponsors time. I would personally rather see that
we don't see requests that are just fixes in comments.
I do want those fixes in the code base but in my opinion they are better
done as part of another set of changes in a similar area of the code
base or subsystem.
Fixes to spelling and grammar that appear in user interfaces are a
different issue but as John said they are still often very low priority
Don't take this that I don't value the work that people are offering I
do but until we have OpenRTI and direct putback these I don't see that
it is a good use of everyone's time.
