We're happy to announce the availability of Mercurial for hosting project sources at Mozdev.
Documentation can be found here:
The biggest caveats:
- CVS is still necessary for maintaining the website and downloads (fixing this is on our roadmap)
- Projects' source information page needs updated by the PO to include information on Mercurial
- We weren't planning on removing the old sources from CVS and we don't have a mechanism for locking CVS, so it might slightly confusing to new users or contributors as to where to get the canonical source for a project if they switch to from CVS to Mercurial
If you're interested in having Mercurial setup for your project, head over to the documentation page and click the link to request a new Mercurial repository.
