Different teams work on their own sub repos, and an integrator syncs
them with the main repo when a jdk build is to be published (promoted).
Multiple heads might appear during the integration and the integrator
does the merges.

You should clone from a single repo, either a sub repo, or the main one,
depending on what you are interested in.
A commiter always clones a sub repo of his own team, because normal
changesets (not a merge) can only be pushed into a sub repo (thru its gate).
