Hi, everyone. I'm excited to announce that the source code for our major projects is now officially hosted on GitHub
The world of source control has changed a lot since we started in 2004, and every few years we re-evaluate what tools might be best for the job. GitHub is unique in having a huge community, friendly user interface, and the capability to integrate with our existing tools. We're confident it will ensure a longer life for our projects by offering visibility and accessibility outside of our infrastructure - not just for us, but for contributors as well.
The following repositories are now live:
The corresponding Mercurial repositories will no longer be updated.
We will continue to use Bugzilla
for bug reporting, issue tracking, and technical communication. For patches to projects, pull requests via GitHub are preferred, and most PRs will not need corresponding bug reports. But often an idea may be large, complex, or contentious - and then it's best to open up discussion early so when the PR is ready, it is more likely to be accepted.
We've also prepared a short Git Tutorial
on the wiki.
As always, thanks for your support! And special thanks to Nephyrin
for helping us with the transition.
