Hi Carsten, everyone,

Adam brought up the very good idea a few months back about setting up some 
kind of revision control, preferrably distributed, for all the right reasons.

See http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/2505/focus=2888

I couldn't wait any longer so I went ahead and set up a mercurial repository 
starting with the current 5.17a. I would have liked to have imported older 
history but it was a lot of work so hopefully Carsten can just send them to 
me and put them in later.

The repository is available at http://hg.bosabosa.org/orgmode/

This is unofficial.

Carsten brought up the very good issue that any patches that get into the 
official branch need to have copyright assigned to the FSF. This is easy to 
handle: there will be a separate repository managed by either Carsten or, if 
he doesn't want to, by me for merging patches once they have FSF copyright 

Carsten's role of shaping and filtering features sounds exactly like Linus's 
role in Linux and so this development model should work well and scale better 
then what we've done in the past.

Hopefully, ease-of-use won't be a problem with mercurial.

I'll be putting my personal patches there for things like trac bugs 
integration, ical import, taskjuggler export, html export improvements, and 
css and javascript for the exported html pages.

Hopefully others will fork mercurial repos as well, and send patches around.

Happy hacking,
