Heads up: Going 100% GitHub at the End of January

Hi, all. Just a quick note to let you all know that we completed the move of MySQL Server development from Bazaar to Git some time ago.

This means that as of the upcoming, end of January batch of Server releases (5.6.23 and 5.5.42), our official source code hosting moves from Launchpad to GitHub. The Launchpad site for MySQL Server will continue to be available for some time, but 5.6.22 and 5.5.41 were the last releases to have their source code posted there.

Unfortunately, as we warned earlier, this also means that we will need to break the history of our GitHub repo. Until now, that repo has been a Git conversion of our Launchpad repo, and when we switch to publishing from our new internal Git repo, history breaks. So if you have cloned our repo, you will need to do so again and merge any changes in your old clone to the new one. Sorry for that inconvenience, but there is really no way around it.

So, in a few weeks, the place to go will be https://github.com/mysql. See you all there!
