Ah, with that pages it gets much clearer! Only how should anyone know that https://github.com/fingolfin/git/commits/remote-hg is related in any form or shape with https://github.com/msysgit/msysgit/wiki/Guide-to-git-remote-hg? I'm afraid it still won't help me much though, as I guess it too requites Python 2.5 or later, as it uses the Mercuroal Python API (and that actually may be the reason why it never made it into git? I believe to have read somewhere that git tries to restrict itself to Python 2.4) > My goals were noble, but you are the second person who considers this work to > be confusing, so if that is what the majority thinks, I am > willing to remove that text again (or rather, hide it away in some private > repository). No, please don't. Rather make that clear on https://github.com/fingolfin/git/commits/remote-hg ...
