Mercurial Now Available to All Open Source Projects

MAY 28, 2009
About a month ago we announced Mercurial support for early testers. Today, we are happy to announce that all Project Hosting users can create a new Mercurial project and convert their existing projects from Subversion to Mercurial

We also want to thank the projects that helped us test support for Mercurial. Projects like Clojure-Dev and Spice of Creation helped us discover new usage patterns and fix several unforeseen issues. Unlike our mature Subversion implementation, there are still a few issues/features that we are working on. 

We therefore encourage everyone to be familiar with what is supported before picking Mercurial.

Please let us know if you have any feedback or find any issues. If you're coming to Google I/O, be sure to come meet us in person and hear our talk about Mercurial on Bigtable this Thursday at 3:45pm-4:45pm in Moscone West - Room 5. We have Mercurial SWAG!
