Awesome to see these converted repos posted!

I would like to stress, that these should still be viewed as prototype 
conversions and need some tire kicking.

When looking at the change log in git, the commits are sorted by 
creation date. This makes it look pretty weird compared to how my 
mercurial mono repo looks. All the changes I created during the 
consolidation (merges and tags) have the date at which the conversion 
was done, so up until jdk8-b120, that's July 2017 and after that it's 
2021. So all those changes are listed on top, and there are a lot of 
them. We could change the conversion script to force other dates into 
the changes, based on something in from the source changes being merged 
or tagged, but since we didn't do that for the original consolidation, 
doing so now would lose the common change history we now have with 
mainline up until jdk8-b120.
