I recently discovered bitbucket.org which is a polished hosting platform for mercurial. It is pretty much like github.com but much smaller. I really like the idea and the implementation of having a cooperative platform which allows you to watch and fork projects. So that’s why I moved my hgbookmarks implementation from freehg.org over to bitbucket.org with a free account.
But the best thing is that it is still very familiar with the main developer jesper hanging around in the #mercurial channel on freenode. He actually changed a few things on my repository as I’m too lazy to setup them up in the first time. Thanks for that.
Hopefully it will grow like github. Well at least I’m thinking about getting a $5/month account on it.
hgbookmarks is a implementation if git-styled branches for mercurial. It allows to create local bookmarks on certain commits that move forward with any commit. You can merge and update those bookmarks. You can think of bookmarks as named commit sha1s
