Announcing first-class Mercurial support on Sourcehut April 15, 2019 on Drew DeVault's blog

I’m pleased to announce that the final pieces have fallen into place for Mercurial support on SourceHut, which is now on-par with our git offering. Special thanks are owed to SourceHut contributor Ludovic Chabant, who has been instrumental in adding Mercurial support to SourceHut. You may have heard about it while this was still experimental - but I’m happy to tell you that we have now completely integrated Mercurial support into SourceHut! Want to try it out? Check out the tutorial.

Mercurial support on SourceHut includes all of the trimmings, including CI support via and email-driven collaboration on Of course, it’s also 100% free-as-in-freedom, open source software (hosted on itself) that you can deploy on your own servers. We’ve tested on some of the largest Mercurial repositories out there, including mozilla-central and NetBSD src. The NetBSD project in particular has been very helpful, walking us through their CVS to Hg conversion and stress-testing with the resulting giant repositories. I’m looking forward to working more with them in the future!

The Mercurial community is actively innovating their software, and we’ll be right behind them. I’m excited to provide a platform for elevating the Mercurial community. There weren’t a lot of good options for Mercurial fans before SourceHut. Let’s fix that together! SourceHut will be taking a more active role in the Hg community, just like we have for git, and together we’ll build a great platform for software development.

I’ll see you in Paris in May, at the inaugural Mercurial conference!

Hg support on SourceHut was largely written by members of the Mercurial community. If there are other version control communities interested in SourceHut support, please reach out!
