If this is formatted in asciidoc the links won't appear as links. Do it
as I did:

 * https://github.com/felipec/git-remote-hg
 * https://github.com/felipec/git-remote-bzr

 1) Most users will *never* see this README
 2) Most packagers will never see this README
 3) The people that do read this README will wonder *why* they are now
    maintained separately.

Thanks for wasting all my hard work and sabotaging these projects.

Just as a heads-up. I *will* complain about this publicly and my blog is
visited by thousands of people.

I am requesting one last time:

 1) Add warnings *directly* into the tools themselves ASAP
    You didn't have any problems adding warnings for pre-v2.0 behavior
    that changed, nor did you have a problem adding the warning about
    the new zsh completion that moved out of the bash one. Why would you
    have a problem with this one?

 2) Replace the tools with stubs that point to the right locations at
    the earliest convenience

I already sent patches for both, and they were ignored.

A failure to do both will result in a lack of visibility of the new
projects, and a decrease in the quality the users of git.git contrib
area's remote-helpers receive. I will consider that a deliberate attempt
to make the new projects experience unnecessary hardship.
