Can someone point me to some info about what Scala source is available
via Github [https://github.com/scala/scala] vs SVN.

- Ive cloned the github repo but I dont see any 2.9.x branches there.
If I want to work with 2.9, do I need to checkout from SVN?

- What are the 3 non-master (openjdk, starr, xsbt) branches in Github
for? What determines which branches are in Github vs Svn?

Thanks

We haven't moved completely to github yet.
starr -> This is the branch focused on getting STARR out of the repo so we can move to git.xsbt -> This is the SBT 0.11 build for scala openjdk -> I think paulp can comment here
The github mirror right now is meant to be small for folks to contribute pull requests to trunk.  Not for general development (yet).   Once the SBT build is stable, you'll see a new mirror of the SVN repos with *everything*.

Builds with java 7. Should probably have a name more to that effect.
