Mercurial on Google Code

You’re not actually surprised are you? 🙂

Read the official blog post for details.

But yes, this is the project I’ve been leading for the last 9 months. I haven’t written any code, but instead it’s been my first chance to really be a ‘tech lead’ (translation: manager) for some truly brilliant programmers on my team. The mercurial-on-bigtable implementation is top-notch.

Note that the feature isn’t finished yet — lots of missing things, lots of bugs to fix still. We’ve not yet fully launched to the public. But you can sign up to be an ‘invited tester’ (if you’re willing to give us feedback), and meanwhile we’ll continue to finish the feature in the public view.

    In other news, the python devs are also switching to mercurial: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2009-March/087931.html

    Sounds like mercurial is gaining momentum.
