@Uncle George:

There has been a short followup, but I think it went on the
web-discuss mailing list.

In any case, the source root already contains the right pointers, both
in the README and in the README-builds.html files:


This one root repository can be obtained with something like:

   hg clone openjdk7

To make sure you have all the nested repositories, you can run:

  cd openjdk7 && sh ./


It's true that the online docs should contains those pointers as well, though.

Hi Kelly,

This is a good news and very welcomed!

I would also like to amend the README files, so that every reference
to the forest disappears, what do you think?
