I believe the changes mailing list will continue with somewhat
different-looking messages, and possibly with some interruption until
details are sorted out.  Possibly the rsync from ActiveState will be a
little behind until mirroring from the new rsync is up and running,
and that new rsync may not be quite ready yet.  But a lot is happening
behind the scenes and there will soon be announcements and more

If you are using rsync to stay up-to-date and are happy with it, there
is no reason to change immediately, but the benefits of using the same
change control system as the committers will now be there if you want
it.  I don't think the plan is to have snapshots anymore, but if you
need them, speak up.

The git commit IDs are a little inconvenient compared to the Perforce
change numbers. You pretty much have to use git's tools to make any
sense of them, but luckily those tools are pretty good and include
lots of web-based features if you don't have git locally.  The best
place to start is probably just digging around at to see how things look.
