There have been multiple forests since OpenJDK started. There are fewer 
now than there used to be and soon there will only be one (and the wheel 
comes full circle). The main concern to date has been keeping 
jdk10/jdk10 easy to forward port fixes from 9 to; which necessitated 
doing all the interesting new hotspot work in the jdk10/hs forest.
