Dear maintainers,

could someone please add Aditya's github mirror at


to the Wiki frontpage?  Currently there is only the bitbucket mirror listed.

Thanks, Henri

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.
