Nginx GitHub mirror

Hi all,

You may or may not be aware that we have recently made some changes to
the Nginx GitHub account and trees ( Before I
go into details I should make it clear that the primary location for
Nginx code will be the Mercurial repositories (
The GitHub trees are more for convenience to the community.

On to the details:

The original GitHub tree basically contained the release tarballs
extracted. This has been moved to and has been deprecated with no
more updates. If there is demand to resurrect it we can do this but for
now it will sit idle for people who have already forked it.

There is a new GitHub tree which is a mirror of the main Mercurial

This is currently updated hourly from one of my servers here in the UK.
It cannot accept pull requests and any pull request will be
automatically closed with instructions on how to contribute (another
hourly script does this).

We hope this helps developers that are more familiar with git than
mercurial to access the bleeding-edge code. If anyone has any questions
please feel free to field them to me.

Happy Tuesday everyone! :)

Kind Regards
Andrew Hutchings (LinuxJedi)
