Georg and I have been working on converting the SVN repository to Mercurial. We can now present you a test repository (actually, two).
The implied agenda is that we would be *very* happy if we could do the final conversion during PyCon (we both won't be attending, so we have plenty of time ;) -- so that the sprints can already benefit from the agility provided by hg.
That's a timescale of around two weeks, which should be plenty for testing.
CPython repository: http://hg.python.org/cpython/
This is the main conversion repository. It contains all history of trunk and py3k (since 1990!) up to now, including all maintenance branches starting from 2.0 up to 3.2.
If you are a core developer, get your local clone of the repository using:
$ hg clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/cpython
(this uses the same SSH key as your Subversion access; for more information about Mercurial and SSH keys, see the converted development FAQ: http://potrou.net/hgdevguide/faq.html#faq )
You can commit and even push to this repository (the latter if you are a core developer). Since this is a test repository, whatever you push will be discarded when we do the final conversion.
So, to stress this point: Please *do* experiment, commit and push stuff to this repository, especially if you've not worked with hg before. You can break nothing (or if you do, it's not your fault :)
