I do sometimes commit patches written by someone else. I tried to always
add him/her to Misc/ACKS and in the changelog entry (Misc/NEWS). With
git, it's possible to record an author different than the commiter. In
Mercurial, I see a --user option.
Can I use this option to commit a patch written by someone else? Or is
there another option for that?
If I use hg commit --user, is it possible to see somewhere that the
commiter was me?
Antoine and me are starting the conversion now (it takes quite
a while to get the SVN repo and convert it, so we're doing it
The majority of the work will be done tomorrow: pushing the new
repositories live, enabling and testing all integration into
python.org services and probably more work on the new devguide.
Please join us in #python-dev if you have questions.
