Earlier this week I uploaded all of the history for PyMOTW to BitBucket.org.
BitBucket uses Mercurial as its DVCS, and after a couple of hiccups with the initial conversion I’ve had pretty good luck. I think I have the workflow down far managing local changes vs. updates pushed to the central repository.
I still need to work out how (and whether) to use branches. I have a sense that I can use local clones in the way I used to use branches: starting an article that was going to take several sessions, without committing the changes to the trunk. What are the typical practices for hg branching? Do people use them?
Today’s PyMOTW post is the first post since the change-over. If you encounter any problems, please report them as an issue via the BitBucket issue tracker.
