What happen to the existing Slicer GitHub repository ?

Between 2011 and March 2020, Slicer sources were maintained in a SVN repository automatically mirrored on GitHub. To speedup time required to checkout Slicer source code, large data files have been removed from the Slicer commit history.

To ensure existing references to both Git SHA and Pull Requests are reachable, the mirrored GitHub repository has been renamed to https://github.com/Slicer/SlicerGitSVNArchive

What is SlicerGitSVNArchive repository ?

This corresponds to the original GitHub repository that was a mirror of the Slicer SVN authoritative repository. See https://github.com/Slicer/SlicerGitSVNArchive
