Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] RFC: OMPI git mirror on github.com

Come to think of it, why not host the official mercurial SVN mirror repo on Bitbucket for the same reason (lots of nice hg features on Bitbucket -- nicer than hgweb/www.open-mpi.org's hosting).

There's no need to delete the original mercurial SVN mirror on www.open-mpi.org (because I know of at least one group who is actively using it), but we could deprecate it and schedule to take it down in, say, 6 months or so.
