Georg and I have been working on converting the SVN repository to Mercurial. We can now present you a test repository (actually, two).
Thanks for working on this!
How do you want bugs reported?
Can you please update the PEP? I see at least the following deviations: - the extrahist repository is not mentioned - the branchmap is (apparently?) not evaluated; in particular, it's not clear whether the keep-clone branches went. - it's not clear what your view on the subversion repository is - do you keep the notion of discarded branches (i.e. branches that can only be discovered from looking at a copy of the subversion repository), or do you mean to convert everything?
As for the cpythonextrahist repository: why are the heads all unnamed? How are you supposed to find anything in it?
I think I would have liked the strategy of the PEP better (i.e. create clones for feature branches, rather than putting all in a single repository).
