My Story of Mercurial and Subversion

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm really getting attached to using 
| Mercurial. I've been a Subversion fan for 
| years but when Ben Collins-Sussman (one of 
| the authours of Subversion) mentioned he's 
| been using Mercurial, I took that as a pretty 
| solid endorsement. I'm not saying I'm jumping 
| ship but I definitely have found some of the 
| things I can do with hg to be pretty 
| convenient compared to the way I've been 
| using Subversion. I've used the two for 
| different types of projects though. My 
| subversion repositories have held the code 
| and resources for my websites for a long 
| time. I've also worked on shared C/C++ 
| applications with Jeff and stored our stuff 
| on an SVN server. It's really convenient 
| since it works well across OSes and I have a 
| central server that I can reach from pretty 
| much wherever I want.



OpenOffice.org migrating to Mercurial

,----[ Quote ]
| The OpenOffice.org (OOo) project has announced
| that it will be switching to Mercurial as its
| source code management (SCM) tool for the future
| development of its open source office suite.  The
| project developers chose Mercurial over other
| distributed source code management tools, such as
| Git or Bazaar, because they "believe that its
| combination of ease of use, flexibility and
| performance fits best with the overall OOo
| needs".

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
