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:

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.

FWIW, I did a quick clone of the bitbucket repo to github:

   https://github.com/contextgarden/context-mirror

We can either ask Philipp Gesang (who maintains the bitbucket repo) to 
also push to github or I can set up a cron job to periodically mirror the 
repo.
