Robin Rosenberg is the only person with write access to,
we need to wait for him to update that page.

This page can be edited by anyone.  Please feel free to start
making changes to it to point at the Eclipse project.  Actually,
that content should be scanned and anything relevant should move
to the Eclipse based wiki for EGit.

I just gave you admin rights here, please feel free to edit this
page to start pointing users to our Eclipse site.

The history was rewritten.  I didn't want to force a reset of
the master branch to the new history where the rename took place.
Instead there is a and branch in
this repository which has the rename and new history, respectively.

These two repositories are going to exist, but should remain
unchanged from now on.  They are now here only to host the prior
history of the project, as the Eclipse Foundation won't let us
bring our history with us.

This is in my mind the current and future state of the project.
New patches are being applied here, and only here.  Anyone working
on either EGit or JGit should be targeting these projects.
