Please allow for some days (!).
It is a HUGE effort to migrate the entire infrastructure of 35+ years
of source code, tickets, trac wiki, IRC, Travis, Web pages, Wiki
pages, finding as many github accounts as possible which are related
to us  etc etc.

We track efforts here:

- Pushing the prepared repo to OSGeo organization within GitHub
- Authorship: Recognizing the GRASS GIS contributors during and after …
- Needed source code updates
- Migration of trac issues
- New labels in the GitHub issue tracker
- Migration of trac wiki
- Aftermath cleanup
- Setup of Gitlab mirror
- Setup of OSGeo gitea mirror

As more or less 1.x people volunteered to do all this work,  it takes a while :)

Best regards,
