The PHP Core source code has migrated to git and is available on GitHub.

Last fall the PHP core team voted to pick a distributed version control system and git won handily.

David Soria Parra, the release manager of PHP 5.4, has put together a workflow for core committers merging GitHub pull requests into PHP.

The php-src repository is 13 years old and includes over 80k commits. Maybe the next commit will be yours?

Welcome to GitHub, PHP. Let the forking begin!
