I'm writing to let you know that we have outgrown our homegrown
mercurial serving (as some of you may have noticed with the
installation errors) and we have moved the yt source code to
BitBucket. Here are the three takeaways:
* You should not have to make any changes for "yt instinfo -u" to
* This should fix all outstanding issues with the install script
timing out when downloading yt.
* You can now much more easily contribute changes!
The new source code location is the same as the old source code
. The username on BitBucket is
"yt_analysis". The DNS might take a few hours to get circulated
around, so if it doesn't work just now, it will by tonight or
To contribute changes you can go here: http://hg.enzotools.org/yt/fork
to get your own version of the yt repository, where you can make
changes and commit, and even notify the main repo when your changes
are ready to push back upstream. We're very excited that this will
enable much greater participation, and I hope that this will lower the
barrier to entry for developing yt! I'm rewriting the developer guide
now, but the short answer to how to make changes has gotten a lot
shorter: just fork the repository and issue a "pull request" when
you're ready to contribute back upstream.
Let us know if this causes any unforeseen problems, and please feel
encouraged to fork and contribute!
