I just ran the following command
$ hg log --template "{author|person}\n" | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr

as giving all the committers to python in sorted order.
I get the list below.
Dont see any Mark Lawrence there
Of course I dont know hg at all well... Just picked up the above command from
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6126678/how-to-list-commiters-sorted-by-number-of-commits-commit-count

So... May I humbly ask where are your precious commits??
