as it seems there is still serious work done on 2.x. WinMerge I think
the repository would be good to be converted and moved to Mercurial and
Bitbucket. Now it is a bit confusing as some code is in "good old" SVN
at sf.net and some (web pages) are in Mercurial at Bitbucket.
If this move happens then we need to think the name too. Dean's
"winmerge" repository is for WinMerge3 (which may not happen that way)
so perhaps WinMerge 2.x repository should be "winmerge2"?
And the motivation is that Mercurial is way much nicer to work with than
SVN. :) Bitbucket allows commit comments and whatever, it is really nice
service nowadays... :)
[Yes, I have "winmerge-v2" repository but it is just mirror I haven't
synched with SVN for a very long time. One can look at it how the SVN
repo looks like as Mercurial repo but real work should not be done with
it. I can re-synch it with current SVN state once I have a bit more time
later this week.]
