This process is now complete, and the mirrors at git.apache.org are
now ready for general use.

Since all the commit histories have changed, a simple pull will result
in a forced merge that will mess up the state of your repository.
Unless you're a very experienced Git user, the easiest way forward is
to make a new clone from git.apache.org (or github.com/apache).

PS. I haven't modified the old mirrors at jukka.zitting.name, so you
can keep pulling from there if your clone is from that server. I will
keep the mirrors at my server operational for a few months more until
everyone has had a chance to migrate to using git.apache.org.
