OpenJDK repo migration to GitHub gains steam
See the original posting on JavaWorld
The effort to move the development of open source Java to GitHub is gathering steam, with the arrival of a formal proposal to migrate single-repository OpenJDK projects to the popular code-hosting platform.
The plan, formalized as part of the OpenJDK Java enhancement proposal process, would move Javas Git repos to GitHub in concert with another proposal to migrate OpenJDK source code repos from Mercurial to Git. Both Java Development Kit (JDK) feature and update releases would be moved to GitHub, for JDK 11 and later versions.
