A follow up email to say that the JDK 8 Updates Census and integration 
forests are now live and open. Thanks to the Ops team for their help 
with that.

I've tagged the master forest with the 'jdk8u20-b00' tag.

Integration forests :

http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8u/jdk8u/  (Master)
  - http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8u/jdk8u-dev/ (Corelibs/Client/Other 
team integrations)
  - http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8u/hs-dev/ (Hotspot team integrations)

We can discuss mercurial notification settings on another thread. For 
the moment, we're following the jdk7u model and using 
jdk8u-dev at openjdk.java.net.
