The transition has been done and the JMC GitHub repository [0] is now 
open for business. The jmc-graphics repository has also been 
transitioned [1]. The corresponding Mercurial repositories have been 
marked as read-only [2].

There is no need to use any particular client-side tooling to 
contribute, but for those of you that are interested we have developed a 
number of utilities meant to aid OpenJDK contributors in project Skara [3].

If you have not yet associated your GitHub account with your OpenJDK 
username, then now is really the time (otherwise the OpenJDK bots won't 
recognize you when you contribute). For information on how to associate 
your GitHub account with your OpenJDK username, please see the Skara 
wiki page [4].

If you run into any issues, have questions and/or feedback, then please 
let the Skara team know by sending an email to the skara-dev mailing 
list [5]. We are constantly tweaking and improving the workflow based on 
your feedback.
