OpenJDK Mercurial Transition Update 7

All the changes you've been seeing are us Sun employees trying out the
new mercurial environment on temporary, throw-away repositories, but
these gates are pretty much what will go live very soon now.
Everything we've been changing will be trashed at the end of this test
period, and the *REAL* repositories will be rolled into place. There
will be some fanfare when that happens, I'm sure. Yes, there are
mechanisms in place to make sure that stuff done during this testing
time isn't actually taken back into the *REAL* repositories.
So, you can certainly try to download and build, as I would be surprised
if anyone would intentionally break the gates. I've personally been
adding a bunch of dumb comments like:
+# this is a dumb comment! ;)
Just realize that everything is just for testing at this point.
Hope this helps.
