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 [1]. 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" [2]. 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.
