The forest is here
and the corresponding gates here
The jdk7u-osx forest is a clone of jdk7u/jdk7u-dev and has the same jcheck
constraints as jdk7u-dev (i.e., duplicate bugids are allowed). The push
macosx-port-dev at openjdk.java.net
When component teams deem it advisable, they'll ask permission to push to
jdk7u-dev via the existing process.
Hotspot pushes to jdk7u-osx will likely happen on the same schedule as those
to jdk7u-dev. The initial port is wending its way through the
from hsx/hotspot-rt through hsx/hotspot-main to hsx/hsx23, and will go from
there to jdk7u-osx/hotspot.
