A few questions:
Q1: Will the old jdk7/hotspot-* forests be deleted at some point to avoid confusion?
Q2: I assume these hsx/hotspot-* repositories are just single hotspot repositories, not forests?
Q3: I assume that jdk8/hotspot still exists and is related to hsx/hotspot-main, can you explain the
process of how you will deliver changes into jdk8/hotspot?
Q4: It appears that jdk8/hotspot is out of date (jdk7-b143 vintage instead of b147), will that be fixed soon?
Q5: I assume that the same jcheck extension rules apply to these repositories:
- No duplicate bugids in changesets
- Same changeset comment syntax conventions
- Whitespace rules on sources (no TABs allowed) etc.
