Okay, then another clarification.

When we need to update our jdk-sandbox branches to current state of master, we are just plainly "git 
merge" master to our branches, right? In other words, we do the same thing as we do with Mercurial here.

We don't do any of "git rebase" magic, even for jdk-sandbox, because the jdk-sandbox branches are 
already public and it would make a mess for other contributors to the same branch? It probably makes 
some sense to say that rebase should not be used except within the personal forks?
