Thanks a lot for your exceptional effort!

I have just one question regarding SVN->GitHub migration: are the branches to 
be migrated as well? It seems that they were not, and I’m not complaining about 
this, just wondering: if they are not subject to migration, then maybe, just 
maybe, I could keep using my SVN branch for SerialUPDI implementation until 
GitHub repo is ready for business?

Thanks in advance for your reply!
