Hmmm, you're right.  There is no non-mailing notice that Rake SCM has  
moved to GitHub.  I'll add something to the README file.  Is there  
somewhere else where it would be good to place this notice.

I plan to keep the subversion repo in place for the moment and push  
major releases out to it.  But the github repo will be the one with  
the latest stuff on it.  Do you see a problem with this?

All official Rake releases will have a 3-level revision tag.  A 4- 
level revision tag indicates an intermediate release (i.e. all 0.8.1.x  
revision are pre 0.8.2) for either internal use or sometimes released  
as a beta (from http://onestepback.org/betagems).

I've not made any official releases off the git repository yet, but  
when I do I will tag it.  I generally don't tag intermediate releases  
(didn't in the subversion repo either).  Is this something to  

Re: signed tags ... never done one, let me look into it.
