The submit repo repos allows committers to submit a change for automatic build and test. This allows non-Oracle committers to build and test on the platforms supported by Oracle.
The submit repo is repos are modeled after JDK sandbox repo. The default branch of the submit repo is automatically sync'd with its upstream repo; submit is sync'd with jdk/jdk and submit-hs is sync'd with jdk/hs. When a branch is updated in the submit repo, it is automatically run through a predefined set of builds and tests. Once the build and test is done, a status email is sent to the committer.
$ hg clone --branch default http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/submit-hs $ cd submit-hs-submit $ hg defpath -du <OpenJDK id> $ hg branch "JDK-7000001" $ echo "Make the README longer." >> README $ hg commit $ hg push --new-branch
