Just wanted to confirm some issues:
I am interested in building the latest (tip) of jdk8 GA release.

1- jdk8 GA is different from jdk8u (u is for updates), I should get the src from
2- The latest tagged version of the src is "jdk8-b132                       9106:43cb25339b55"
3- I confirm that I have the latest src (for GA) by running "hg tags" like
   unix> cd srcDir/jdk ; hg tags | head -2
  tip                             9107:687fd7c7986d
  jdk8-b132                   9106:43cb25339b55

I go ahead and build everything and then run "java -version" and I see

openjdk version "1.8.0-20141202"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-20141202-HDS-174701)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.0-b70, mixed mode)

Q- Why am I seeing "build 25.0-b70" ? Does this "b70" has anything to do with above "jdk8-b132" ?
