Understanding and navigating the repositories on hg.openjdk.java.net

Is there any kind of manual/user-guide that describes the mercurial web 
interface that we see on hg.openjdk.java.net?

I'm finding the interface totally bemusing. I'm trying to see, for 
example, whether a bunch of fixes I put into jdk7/tl/jdk have made their 
way into jdk7/jdk7/jdk - should be simple right? ;-) But I can't even 
find my fixes where I would expect to find them. For example, if you 
look at:


there are changesets listed from 8 hours ago through to 5 weeks ago 
(though the order is also bemusing). Yet my last push was on March 30 
and I can't see it listed on this page. Yet if I click on the "-60" link 
(what the heck does that mean anyway???) I find my last push on that 
page - a page which contains changesets from 4 days ago through to 5 
weeks ago. So whatever ordering is being used here it sure isn't 
anything intuitively obvious.

Can someone enlighten me please or point me to the manual.
