jdk/jdk repository transition to Git, GitHub and Skara is done

We had understood the mercurial jdk/jdk becomes a read-only
_mirror_ of the git openjdk/jdk.
Was this a misunderstanding, or are there still some technical
things to resolve? So far, we saw no changes in mercurial jdk/jdk
after the transition. (We are not yet done moving our
infrastructure to git.)

> Hi all,
> the transition to Git, GitHub and Skara for the Mercurial jdk/jdk 
> and jdk/sandbox  is now done. The Git repositories jdk  and
> jdk-sandbox  are now open for contributions. Note that the jdk/client
> repository has been retired  and that the jdk/submit repository has
> been replaced by /test pull request command . Due to planned
> maintenance the /test pull request command might now work reliably until
> Sep 7 .
> To get started with Git, GitHub and Skara, see the "Getting Started"
> section on the Skara wiki . In particular, make sure that you
> associate your OpenJDK username with your GitHub username . On the
> Skara wiki you will also find:
> - an extensive FAQ 
> - reference documentation for all pull request commands 
> - reference documentation for all CLI tools 
> If you are new to Git then we strongly recommend the excellent "Pro Git"
> book to get started. The book is freely available for reading online at
> https://git-scm.com/book and can also be downloaded for offline reading.
> For those of you working with the JDK Updates project (whose
> repositories still use Mercurial) the Skara CLI tooling is backwards
> compatible with Mercurial. For more information about using the Skara
> CLI tools and Mercurial, including how to import a Git patch to
> Mercurial, see the Skara wiki .
> With a transition this large and complex, we are bound to have missed
> something. If you run into bugs, errors or if something is missing,
> start by taking a deep breath :) We also get annoyed when the tools we
> use for our daily work aren't working as expected, so we feel your
> frustration. If you run into issues, please reach out to us on skara-dev
> , ping us on IRC  or file a bug on Skara in JBS .
> Last, but definitely not least, we would like to thank the following
> people for making this transition possible:
> - Mark Reinhold
> - Joe Darcy
> - Erik Joelsson
> - Stanislav Smirnov
> - Christian Törnqvist
> - Tim Bell
> - Tony Squier
> - All Skara contributors!
> A huge thank you also to all OpenJDK projects that have transitioned
> before the JDK project. You have all provided invaluable feedback that
> has helped shaped the Git, GitHub and Skara experience. Please help your
> friends and colleagues in OpenJDK that are now embarking on the same
> transition that you all have already accomplished.
