No

From the main pywin32 project page, there is no longer a link to the hg repo. The repo is visible from http://pywin32.hg.sourceforge.net/hgweb/pywin32 and I'm able to push to it, but users visiting the project page can't find any reference to the repo.

    Greetings,

    It looks like your repository didn't get properly migrated to the new system when your project was upgraded. You will need to move over to the new system. I recommend the following:

    1. Create a new hg repository via Admin -> Tools
    2. Update your config and push to the new location
    3. Let us know so we can set up a redirect to point users to the new repository location

    I see you haven't followed my instructions yet. Is there something you're stuck on?

    I'm not sure how to do this without the risk a contributor will screw up their repo (ie, push to the old one after the new one is created but before the redirect is in place, then find someone else pushed to the new one). Is it not possible for you to perform these steps atomically (ie, make the old repo unavailable, move it to the new location, then add the redirect?)
