RESTClient Source Code Migrated to GitHub

The message from Google seems to be clear: it does not want to invest in non-profit making venture like Google Code. Google has been killing feature-after-feature from the Google Code service recently. The two most affected me were:

  1. Removing Updates page without any notification.
  2. Removing the Downloads service.

Add to this fact, Google not adding any new feature to Google Code in the recent past.

Well, the message seemed clear. And we have initiated on our part to move code to other well maintained services like GitHub / BitBucket. Our most used project, RESTClient code is already moved to GitHub. Note, we have moved only the source code, Issues and Wiki is still hosted in Google Code. Moving Issues and Wiki will be done in a phased manner in near future.
