ACTION: Observe the repo lock time tomorrow and then take steps to keep 
your changesets "jcheck clean".

* 9-dev and 8u-dev will be locked Friday, Jan 22 between 8:00 am and 
noon Pacific (although I hope to finish sooner).

* After we open back up, use the new checkWhiteSpace script or run "hg 
jcheck" before pushing. More on this when we open back up (don't fix up 
any white-space issues before tomorrow).

* Please make sure that you use proper hg commit messages from now on.

As previously announced we will have a "jcheck cleanup" day tomorrow. In 
preparation for this, I ask for your assistance by not pushing any 
chanegsets after 8:00 am Pacific tomorrow to either 9-dev or 8u-dev. I 
expect it will take 2 - 4 hours for us to make the changes to all needed 
forests and then do a verification step, which will include looking at 
the patches to ensure no changes other than white space and doing a full 
test build on Mac, Linux, Windows.

With the help of Dave's handy checkWhiteSpace script, I will push a 
changeset tomorrow to fix:

I will also push a changeset to address the errant hg tags to fix:

Let me know if you have any questions.
