We discussed this a while back, but discussions seem to have come to a halt.
Using the rebase extension to hg, I've succeeded in producing a
version of the OpenJDK6 repository based on the same 0 revision as the
This means that pulls from the hs14 master can be used to update this
repository, which isn't the case with the current OpenJDK6 repository
as they have no common parent. However, unlike hs14, it does include
all the history and fixes from OpenJDK6 (some of which don't seem to
have made the HS7 repos, such as deleting binary jar files).
Does this look ok? If so, can someone with ssh access to
hg.openjdk.java.net please replace the current hotspot repository with
this one, so we can update it to the current hs14 revision and add any
other pending changes?
It would be nice to finally let HotSpot development in OpenJDK6 move on!
