PPS A repacked sample git repo, as alluded to earlier in this thread and 
as discussed in the Skara presentation from the OpenJDK Committers’ 
Workshop, equivalent to a recent snapshot of JDK 12 is available for 
browsing and cloning from:

     git clone

This import preserves the contents and formatting of commit messages. 
We've had some initial discussions on how rewriting the exiting JDK 
commit messages could allow better integration with git-based tooling.

This git repo is a sample to allow inspection and experimentation. It is 
not meant to imply a commitment to a particular SCM or hosting provider.
