Yes. In my "profile", it says:

  Contributor to buildroot, crosstool-ng, devicetree-bindings,
  linux-gpio, linux-i2c, linux-ide, linux-imx, linux-mtd, linux-pci,
  linuxppc-dev, netdev, netfilter-devel, patchwork, rtc-linux,
  sparclinux, uboot.

So apparently patchwork is able to know to which project I posted at
least one patch. So maybe you can show only the users that have
contributed at least one patch in the project?

Or simply we need a new flag for users, like "maintainers" but that
doesn't give them the right to manipulate all patches, only the ones
that have been delegated to them.
