I have transferred the repository formally known as


to the new "armedbear" Github group


(unfortunately the shorter group "abcl" was taken).

This Git repository is maintained as a two-way bridge from the official
[ABCL history in SVN][svn]


Issues were being filed against the github account, so I wanted to at
least rename their URIs to something that would be sustainable in the
future.  I intend to maintain the [Trac issue][1]/[github issue][2]
correspondence until I can figure out a migration strategy that makes
sense with the resources I have.  It is important to me to maintain the
existing URIs which refer to aspects of ABCL development as live links,
so my plan is to somehow redirect everything that has been published and
indexed by crawlers via some sort of mediating redirect service as the
underlying technologies change and I get the resources to maintain things.


For the possible contributors to abcl, the process for use of Git is
quite simple:  just use the Github ABCL repository as you would any
other open source project, contributing code via pull requests on
Github.  We'll take care of the release engineering, ensuring that
everything gets consolidated into a reasonable release branch.

happy hacking,

P.S. Anyone who wants to provide me with a github id to be a member of
the Armedbear group via out-of-band means is welcome.
