Today we're happy to announce that the Spring Framework has moved to GitHub!
As you've probably noticed, nearly every other Spring project has already made the move, and those that haven't will soon.
Git helps us with many of the challenges of managing a large codebase like the Spring Framework, but what's most exciting is what GitHub means for the Spring community. Many readers will already know the virtues of watching and forking repositories, pull requests, forking and editing, and the many other features that GitHub adds to the already excellent world of Git. If you're new to this stuff, be sure to check out the great materials at help.github.com.
Otherwise, you'll find everything you need in the new Spring Framework readme.
Merry forking Christmas!
