First bitbucket fork

For a while now I’ve been trying to get around to use a dvcs (distributed version control system). I’ve somehow convinced myself that git is great (cool name and rails guys use it and so on), I even created a gihthub account, but somehow could not find the time to check it out… And eventually I took the mercurial for a test drive. It is written in python and, as Mike Orr said, there is probably no python project that uses git instead of mercurial, so there it was – mercurial. There’s a great tutorial for mercurial over here. And as it turns out, dvcs rock! You don’t need a server, easy branching and merging, which encourages code experimenting. And after an hour or two you can just merge the final working version and noone will know that you had sixty two gazillion of broken versions in your local repo. This is really cool! It’s like svn on steroids.

At the same time Graham Higgins sent me a link to his project shabti, which is a bit too much for what I need right now. For a while now I’ve been playing around with pylons and I really missed the scaffoldingm so I created that for shabti. The code and a tutorial are here.
