New candidate JEP: 357: Migrate from Mercurial to Git

The intention is to separate the decision of whether not to migrate to 
git from the decision of how to host the git repos, assuming the 
migration occurs.

So there is an implicit dependency between delivering 357 and on a 
yet-to-be- created JEP to discussion git hosting options.

HTH; cheers,
