Alloy templates are now available on GitHub

Along with the release of CMS 11 we have also made the Alloy templates available on GitHub. There are separate repositories for Web Forms and MVC, available here:

These templates are used to generate the sites that are used in Episerver's Visual Studio extension. So any improvements to these sites will eventually end up in the extension. We would really like to have more community input in these templates since you are the ones using them the most. However, with that said, we can not currently accept pull requests to the repositories from non-episerver employees due to legal reasons. But we are currently working on creating a CLA that will allow us to accept contributions. The idea being that contributors will be required to sign the CLA when creating a pull request.
