Re: hg conversion notes and summary

FWIW, 261 sites cloned or downloaded
eCos from hg in the first 48 hours from the first public download.  Not
quite firefox or linux standards, but then we are not talking about a
consumer item (the source, that is).  I was quite pleasantly surprised
by the number and apparent level of interest.  It is a good argument
against anyone who thinks eCos is dead.

It also raised something I did not think about.  As people look like
they are using the repo already, there is a good argument for also
providing patches through the mechanisms hg provides.  I would be
interested to know whether you are still sticking with email, or whether
you intend to start using bugzilla, since I could start work on a
template to give you maintainers some idea of what support you should
expect from your DRCS in the provision of patches and contributions.  hg
has both email and bugzilla support, BTW :-)

I would also look to preserve the changeset IDs if you were to convert
from hg to git, or if you chose hg, clone rather than export/import, so
as not to inconvenience those who have already started using the repo.

As an aside, I am glad people are finding it useful - makes my efforts
worthwhile and feel appreciated.  Even more, I am very pleased our small
Dell SC1425 did not appear to blink - hgwebdir.cgi is better than I
thought :-)
