These are the promotion and sub-group repositories, and you don't need
to explicitly pull any of them.
Developer work goes into many of these, which are then run up the repo
trees after testing. Work for a given repository is pushed to the
corresponding *-gate repo, and then internally promoted.
The latest tested build of the full JDK can always be found in the
http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/jdk7 forest of repositories.
