Migrate project

Issue #75 resolved

Originally reported on Google Code with ID 75

First, I would like to thank you guys from almworks.com for such a great project, and
for your excellent Javadoc documentation online! I have been maintaining the Cordova
sqlite plugin project for the past few years and am planning to use your project due
to its good design and excellent efficiency.

I suspect you have heard that Google has decided to end its project hosting. I hope
you will continue to support the project somewhere else. Github is the most famous,
but I decided to migrated an old project of mine to Sourceforge since it still supports

I already made my own clone online but would like to an official version of the library
source code properly supported somewhere.

This is really important due to some deficiencies and problems with the standard Android
database classes. Some people have now reported locking and data loss problems with
the sqlite plugin, caused by issues with the built-in database library in the latest
Android versions, here: https://github.com/brodysoft/Cordova-SQLitePlugin/issues/193

I am also happy to take the support over if you do not plan to continue supporting
this project.

    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for your kind words! :)
    Yes we're aware Google is shutting down Google Code, we intend to move the project
    in a few months. Haven't decided where to yet, but first choice would be BitBucket
    or Github. Is svn support really important to you?
    We're still supporting the project, of course, and make improvements from time to time,
    but you're welcome to join in if you have ideas on improvements or capacity to make
    patches. We're using the library in our commercial software, but we're not doing much
    mobile or embedded development ourselves, so we find it challenging to properly build
    and test the library for all the different platforms we're asked about.
    Kind regards,

    Nope! I like Github best since it supports better interlinking and otherwise excellent
    cooperation between projects. Considering that even Microsoft and Google favor Github
    over their own solutions.
    If I have a chance, I will also try to sqlite4java with the SQLCipher project and promote
    the integration.
