consolidated repo - work in progress

as part of the consolidated repo move [1], we are also transitioning all 
our openJDK project repositories to a new consolidated form - this of 
course include amber.

As part of this effort, we have just got a brand new amber repository 
[2] (which is currently a pristine copy of jdk10/master). The former 
amber forest has been moved to [3].

We plan to migrate to the new consolidated repo in the next few days. In 
the meantime, please use the following script foo to bulk update your hg 
repo to point at the right location:

for f in `find . -name hgrc` ; do sed -i 
's/\/amber\/amber/\/amber\/amber10-old/g' $f ; done

This should replace all occurrences of the old repo names in the hgrc 
files throughout the amber forest.

Apologies for the disruption :-)

We could have avoided some of the disruption by picking a fresh name for 
amber, but I believe in the long run it's better to keep the repo 
namespace clean.
