good question, currently the code lies in a branch of the SVN:
http://websvn.ow2.org/listing.php?repname=asm&path=%2Fbranches%2FVALHALLA%2F

no, basically, there is some support to read the previous version of the 
attribute storing the generics info,
but the format has changed and I've not followed that.

Yes, we are old fashioned :)
the code is hosted on objectweb for historical reason and objectweb only 
supports SVN as far as I know.
You can create a git from the SVN branch and use github if you want. At 
the end, it's just a  series of patches.
