Googlecode Shutdown

Connor Tumbleson

brut.alll started the Googlecode project for Apktool in January 2010, with the first release being published on Googlecode in March of 2010. Googlecode became the home for Apktool from then until March 2015 when Googlecode announced a shutdown of the service.

After already losing the ability to upload files years ago, it was obvious Googlecode was loosing to popular alternatives such as Github and Bitbucket.

Since Apktool already had a mirror of GIT at Github, we choose to move there.
