git.  By the way, how will this affect our CI and TCK machinery?

Actually I have no idea.  I don’t remember a lot of CI infrastructure and if we had it it
is probably out of date by now and better replaced with e.g. jenkins or something.  As for
the TCK I’m not sure if we are even supposed to be running the EE 6 tests any more?  I never
really understood how the tck automation worked.
