+Welcome to OpenJDK!
+===================
 
-  The root repository can be obtained with something like:
-    hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk9/jdk9 openjdk9
+For information about building OpenJDK, including how to fully retrieve all
+source code, please see either of these:
 
-  You can run the get_source.sh script located in the root repository to get
-  the other needed repositories:
-    cd openjdk9 && sh ./get_source.sh
+  * common/doc/building.html   (html version)
+  * common/doc/building.md     (markdown version)

-     variable.
-
-  2. Configure the build:
-       bash ./configure
-
-  3. Build the OpenJDK:
-       make all
-     The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/images/jdk
