We have a cronjob propagate changes from our internal repository to the OpenJDK repository once a week at 3am (CET) on Sunday.
We currently use this delay to give ourselves a chance from prevent/fixing "unsavory" changesets getting out.

A good way to mitigate disruption to your workflow is to look through the 'hg incoming' changesets before pulling. If you see something that you suspect will cause a headache, please send a message to this list and we'll do our best to explain the changes in more detail as well as hopefully give tips on how to minimize disruption if/when you integrate them.

At the moment, we don't send out change messages apart from what's in the changeset descriptions.
