Exporting Mercurial Data

    16 February 2014

    Yesterday, I came across a report card for GitHub users. It inspired me to mine the data from my current project, which uses Mercurial. For those of you that do not know, Mercurial is similar to git in that it is a distributed source control system. It is written in Python, which makes it the language of choice for exporting the data I am interested in.
