Recently, I've logged a few issues on and tried to submit patches where possible.

However, I have not been able to find any documentation that states where the hg repositories are. There are some under and some under

Please could the documentation somewhere list the official repos and what they are used for.

I have attached a patch to the devguide repo which probably has:
 * The wrong list of repos (I still don't know what the correct list is); and
 * The list in the wrong part of the documentation.

Nevertheless, I hope this helps.

Thank you for the suggestion. We are actually starting our official transition to hg, which makes things a bit unstable.

The final URL ( is currently a test repo, while the "usable for work right now" ( repositories are temporary mirrors which will get dismantled once the transition is over. Meaning we probably want to adapt your patch a bit, once the dust settles ;)

Just for the record: at the moment, Python's source code isn't maintained in Mercurial at all, but in subversion. Therefore, there are no official repos - it's no surprise you didn't find any documentation what they were.

Conversion is underway today. Completion should be announced at least on the pydev list.

Does this need any more action?

Closed because the issue is solved by:

1. The devguide has a "Browse online" link that points to the correct repositories at

2. Any attempt to access redirects the user to the correct repositories above.
