Yes. Make sure you're working on the correct branch if you're working on
a bug-fix, the master branch will become 3.16 when we release
Base-3.16.1 but we like to fix bugs in the earliest branch where they
appear and merge the fixes upwards.

We have recently migrated the EPICS Base source code from Bazaar to Git,
but we are sticking with Launchpad for hosting because of the large
collection of development branches, bug reports, merge requests and
history there. Launchpad doesn't yet integrate with Git quite as well as
it did with Bazaar, but it works well enough for our purposes. It does
allow us to track a bug's status separately on the different branches,
while Github's support for bug tracking is less comprehensive.

That said there is a mirror of the Base repository on Github at
https://github.com/epics-base/epics-base and if someone really doesn't
want to create an account on Launchpad just in order to create a merge
request there we will accept pull requests for Base through Github (or
you can send patch files from git to the core-talk list).
