Hi all,
I've just moved the main repository of IMDbPY from Mercurial to Bitbucket,
please take notice (below, the reasons for this action).

I've moved the old Mercurial repository of IMDbPY to
Then I've created a new Git repo, https://bitbucket.org/alberanid/imdbpy/

>From now on, the source code of IMDbPY can be taken from
github ( https://github.com/alberanid/imdbpy ) or this new Git repo
on Bitbucket: they will be kept in sync.

I hope this doesn't cause too much trouble. :-)

Best regards,
