-On a techincal level git and Mercurial are fairly similar, however the git
-branching model is signifcantly better than Mercurial "Named Branches" for
-non-comitter contributors. Mercurial does have a "Bookmarks" extension, however
-this isn't quite as good as git's branching model. All bookmarks live in the
-same namespace so it requires individual users to ensure that they namespace
-the branchnames themselves lest the risk collision. It also is an extension
-which requires new users to first discover they need an extension at all, and
-then figure out what they need to do in order to enable that extension. Since,
-in contrast to the branching feature in git, this feature is a Mercurial
-extension, in general, its support outside the Mercurial core is less
-extensive. Finally, users who are not used to Mercurial are unlikely to
-discover bookmarks on their own, instead they will likely attempt to use
-Mercurial's "Named Branches" which, given the fact they live "forever", are not
-often what a project wants their contributors to use.
