Announcing the new Docs Repo on GitHub!

The documentation team at Docker is excited to announce that we are consolidating all of our documentation into a single GitHub Pages-based repository on GitHub. When is this happening? The new repo is public now at https://github.com/docker/docker.github.io. During the week of Monday, September 26th, any existing docs PRs need to be migrated over or merged. We’ll do one last “pull” from the various docs repos on Wednesday, September 28th, at which time the docs/ folders in the various repos will be emptied. Between the 28th and full cutover, the docs team will be testing the new repo and making sure all is well across every page. Full cutover (production is drawing from the new repo, new docs work is pointed at the new repo, dissolution of old docs/ folders) is complete on Monday, October 3rd.
