Do you want to start using the Git version of the repo in the Mach5 CI pipeline for the lworld branch?

We have been asked to try out Git, GitHub and the Skara tooling, as a means of validating, and to provide feedback about the Project Skara effort. There is already a number of OpenJDK projects using Git, GitHub and Skara:

After the transition, the current Mercurial repository would no longer be updated. There is currently already a read-only mirror of Valhalla in place , you can it use to try out Git and some of the tooling, though submitting pull requests and pushing will not work (as it is a read-only mirror).
>>>> I suggest that project Valhalla transition to git, GitHub and Skara and that we set the target date for the transition to around 2 weeks from now. How about Monday the 9th of March? I also suggest we adopt GitHub's pull request workflow together with the bots from project Skara.
>>>> Adopting pull requests and the Skara bots means that the review process would work partly through GitHub. In particular, all changes must start out as pull requests. Skara automatically generates webrevs, "RFR" emails and supports bi-directional syncing between mailing lists and GitHub for those that prefer using webrev and the mailing lists. If you are unfamiliar with GitHub and pull requests, I suggest checking out GitHub's guide . Note that project Skara also provides CLI tools for interacting with GitHub for those that prefer working from a terminal. You can find more info about these tools on the Skara wiki page  or from the Skara README .
