Hello list.

A simple question:  is there a git mirror of the Galaxy repositories? If
not, what do git users here do to work with the Galaxy code base?


I don't think there is an official git mirror, but even if there was it
wouldn't help for pushing changes or suggestion into Galaxy.

Speaking as a git user who only has to use hg for Galaxy, I just
learnt enough hg to get the basics done, and frequently consult
resources like this:


Similarly, I'm also a git user who's faced with the prospect of using Mercurial only for Galaxy. Sure, the two tools work in similar ways, but it's still something I'd rather avoid for a number of reasons.

I noticed that BitBucket is now offering both mercurial and git access. Maybe there's an easy way projects can offer access to their repositories through both tools?

A solution I'm trying at the moment is git-hg (https://github.com/cosmin/git-hg). Seems to work...I've managed to clone the galaxy-dist repository as a local git repository.
