Yes, since you are a Committer (actually Reviewer, but the point here is 
that you have Committer status) you have been given direct write access 
to the openjdk/jdk-sandbox repository [0]. Feel free to use the 
openjdk/jdk-sandbox repository in the same way as you used the Mercurial 
jdk/sandbox repository [1].

Yes, good suggestion, I added an entry [2].
