Good to have you on board! I think Iris is away for a few days but she
has been working on the OpenJDK Developers Guide . This has a section
on repositories that includes information on the installation and
configuration of Mercurial. Another important section is the "Producing
a Changeset" section that details the procedures needed to produce a
changeset and how to getting your ssh key setup. In addition to the
developers guide, a real must is Bryan O'Sullivan's online book
"Distributed revision control with Mercurial" . The first two
chapters are sufficient to get a basic working knowledge. OpenJDK uses
the Mercurial forest. This isn't covered in the book but there links in
the developers guide on how to set that up.
