[infra] myfaces extensions meet dvcs

it's getting easier for the community to contribute to myfaces-extensions *!

now we have official git mirrors:

as well as inofficial mercurial mirrors (hg isn't supported by the asf):

in case of myfaces-extensions * the mercurial repositories provide an additional feature. early adaptors can request an inofficial (external) milestone at any time. it's easier to handle issues compared to nightly builds.

dvcs like mercurial and git allow easy forking of repositories and experimenting with new features. with features like squash it's very easy to donate the result of your feature-branch!

so let's get started: fork -> experiment -> donate (your patch)!
