Aiee, I wish I had known about this before I wrote similar code last
week.  It's not particularly polished, but if it can help anyone else,
here it is:


commits.py parses revision info into a CSV file "commits.csv".  On the
first pass you will need to download all the HTML pages and supply
them as arguments; on subsequent passes you can run it with no
arguments and it'll grab the changes assuming they all fit on the
first page of revisions.

scrape.py downloads the revision zip files from the CSV file if they
aren't already present.

import.py imports the zip files and metadata into a Mercurial

If you just want to track IronPython it is probably easier just to
use/clone my repository, which is (still) at:
