Mercurial and MacOS 10.7

For those early adopters of Mac0S 10.7 (Lion) that also use Mercurial as their DVCS, you may find the update broke Mercurial (it did for me).

If you get errors using Mercurial on Lion there is now a new version of Mercurial available and it works a treat.

Hope this helps someone spend less time head scratching than I did.

Bitbucket Import

Following the lead of David Hay and starting to blog things so I don't forget them in future.

I'd been struggling with adding an already existing Mercurial local repository to Bitbucket and it turned out to be quite straightforward once I'd engaged my brain.

All I needed to do was create a file under the .hg directory in the root of the project called "hgrc" and populate it with:
default = https://<your_username><your_username>/<your_projectname>

And then just run "hg push" from the top level project directory as I'd already run "hg add" from the same top level directory to add the project files to the local repository.
