How to use Mercurial for local source code management with a public Subversion server

P: n/a


I'm working on a patch or two for Python. Now, it's always best to use
a source code manager (rcs, whatever) when writing code; in particular
it'd make updating to the latest Python trees much easier. But I don't
have write access to the Python Subversion repository. So I figured
out how to work purely locally with Mercurial.

I wrote a long(ish) how-to blog entry about it, . It's currently the
top entry, here:

Figuring out *how* to do it was the hard part; it's actually pretty
easy to set up and use. And *very* pleasant to work with! If you're
working on patches for Python, I highly recommend you work using
something like this. (Maybe even if you *do* have write permission!)

I considered posting this in the Python-Dev mailing list, as that's
really the target audience, but I wasn't sure the message would be
happily received by its subscribers.

Cheers,
