Hi all,

https://github.com/python/cpython is now live as a semi-official, *read only* Github mirror of the CPython Mercurial repository. Let me know if you have any problems/concerns.

I still haven't decided how often to update it (considering either just N times a day, or maybe use a Hg hook for batching). Suggestions are welcome.

The methodology I used to create it is via hg-fast-export. I also tried to pack and gc the git repo as much as possible before the initial Github push - it went down from almost ~2GB to ~200MB (so this is the size of a fresh clone right now).


P.S. thanks Jesse for the keys to https://github.com/python

Awesome! I find Github way nicer for reading source than hg.python.org's web interface, any chance I could convince you to do this for the peps repo too? ;)

Here you go - https://github.com/python/peps

Both mirrors are currently updated twice per night (23:00 and 04:30 US Pacific time). I may switch over to a VPS at some point and have more regular updates.
