There's no centralized place for that despite efforts like

It can happen on many mailing lists (debian-mentors@l.d.o being the

(This should be common knowledge BTW, I already pointed you to

It shouldn't be up to the AM to check what the applicant did... it's the
job of the applicant to keep a little log of his contributions to help the
AM and the DAM judge his abilities and whether or not he is ready to be
accepted in Debian.

The log should be verifiable: it should point to public archives like
mailing lists, BTS, PTS, ...
