[NTG-context] Source very outdated

Dear list,

I'm quite new to ConTeXt and have worked my way through a lot of documentation.  The Garden is an invaluable source as well as this mailing list.  Sometimes it occurs that a feature which is announced on the mailing list is neither documented in the Garden nor in some PDF.  Then I proceed to browse the source where I found four resources:

(1) local (for TeXlive in /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/tex/context)
(2) http://source.contextgarden.net/
(3) http://repo.or.cz/w/context.git
(4) https://bitbucket.org/phg/context-mirror

The first three are outdated and the last doesn't offer full text search.  I could update the first source, but I don't want to break my existing setup and often I just look at the source to find out how things are implemented or to checkout whether a new feature is worth updating.  It would be great if the online sources (2) and (3) could be updated.

Another option would be to move the (4) from bitbucket to github, because github offers full text search in a repository (among other features, like continuous integration or gitter.im chatroom which are all free for an open-source project, see [1] for details).

I'd love to hear what the elders of ConTeXt think about this.

Cheers, Henri
