Farewell to Google Code ... now where?

Google announced yesterday that it is shutting down its Google Code
project hosting service[1].  Per the scheduled sunset, on August 24,
2015 the site -- and with it, the Subversion Book development
repositories -- will go read-only.  That means we have a decision to
make about where to relocate our project hosting.

In the interest of straight shooting, let's just say it:  GitHub has won
the project hosting battle.  So it is my recommendation that we begin
the process of migrating the svnbook repository and issue tracking to
GitHub.  Google has even made this process pretty easy with a
semi-automated GitHub migration tool (that I've now used for three of my
personal projects).

I'll certainly entertain other ideas, if only to see if in 2015 there
/are/ actually any other valid ideas.  Given that there are only about
three people who ever commit to this repository, I'm not expecting waves
of feedback.  That's fine.  Just wanna get this out there for any
discussion that may need to happen.
