According to StackExchange's Github page, PageDown is still a Mercurial repo hosted on Google Code. However Google Code is going to become read-only on August 25, 2015 and it'd be nice for PageDown to be moved to live with the other repos in the StackExchange organization on Github

Is this going to happen? If so when?

    It's worth mentioning that there are many people who have already made copies of the PageDown repo in github. Such as github.com/ujifgc/pagedown. But none of them seem to be official (I'd expect it to be on the StackExchange org w/ the other repos they have).

  • Bitbucket certainly is mercurial, but StackExchange already has a presence on Github and Google Code has a nice "Export to Github" button.

This same question appears in the discussion under this initial question on Meta StackOverflow:
What's the Markdown Editor that Stack Overflow is using?

The answer there states they will migrate to Github when they have pagedown changes to commit and the official StackExchange Github page says that the PageDown repo is https://github.com/balpha/pagedown
