I cannot comment on Oracle development processes but the Whamcloud 
processes are laid out on 

Many of the Whamcloud team (including Andreas and myself) have been 
involved with Lustre since the CFS days.

The Whamcloud release has the backing of the Lustre community groups 
(EOFS\OpenSFS) - see 
and http://www.eofs.eu/index.php?id=6 .

If you would like to keep abreast of developments relating to Whamcloud 
releases then you should sign up to the Whamcloud mailing list -
