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
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.
