    This may be off topic but I think MySQLdb would benefit greatly from moving to
    http://bitbucket.org/

    The ticket, code-browsing, forking, and collaboration interfaces are all far
    superior over there. Just a suggestion.

    Every time I have about hit my limit with sourceforge and start looking for
    new hosts, they improve something or other. The 1.3/2.0 development version is
    in Hg now. While Bitbucket is good, I'm not convinced it's worth the trouble
    to move at this point.

    Your decision of course. Github is amazing but it's git only - and it sounds
    like you've decided on Mercurial. Cheers.

    What would it take for us to convince you to switch over to Bitbucket?

    A clear advantage or killer app would be a good start. See comment #2. I don't
    have a need for a private repository, so we should be able to get by with one
    of their free accounts. adamnelson in #1 said, "The ticket, code-browsing,
    forking, and collaboration interfaces are all far superior over there." Well,
    great, if I had some people interested in development.

    In the interest of science, I've created a repository over there:
    https://bitbucket.org/farcepest/mysql-python So far, it is empty. This doesn't mean I've officially
    switched. Use at your own risk.

    This would be fantastic. I still hold my chips for Github but if you're
    sticking with Mercurial, bitbucket is the obvious choice.

    Cheers,
