22Exim development is kept within a git (L<https://git-scm.com/>)
23repository. The master repository is at L<git://git.exim.org/exim.git>
24with a web interface giving change and source visibility at
25L<https://git.exim.org/exim.git>
26
27There is a secondary repository on github at
28L<https://github.com/Exim/exim> managed by the Exim Organisation
29- however this may currently fall out of synchronisation with the
30main one.

56If you are using a Linux or other freely available Unix like operating
57system it is very likely that your system will have Exim packaged for
58it already. In this case it is probably prudent to use these packages
59unless you have specialised requirements.
60
61In any case you can always ask on the
62Exim Users mailing list L<https://lists.exim.org/mailman/listinfo/exim-users>
