It's time for some dancing

At the third stroke, the time will be 11pm US/Pacific......

From 11pm US/Pacific the NV gate is not accepting any more putbacks and is not under the control of teamware.

Time to start dancing (on the grave of teamware {cue evil cackle}).

I'm really looking forward to the new way of working - with Mercurial and the collection of associated utilities which people like Rich, Dave, Bill and MJN have been working on for ages to smooth the transition. Of course, that collection is called "Cadmium" - it's layered on top of Mercurial. (See the Periodic Table). It took me ages to get it.

Another (large) step along the road

Just saw this in my mailbox from mjnelson:

Along with a copy (or 6!) of the associated flag day message:

Flag day: ON Developer Tools upgraded to support Mercurial




There's more associated doco to come, of course, but from now on if you're building OpenSolaris (ok, the ON consolidation) from the source then you should really get up to speed on how your workspace management tools behave.

This is all in preparation for the close of build 96: from the open of build 97 the ON gate will be managed with Mercurial.... as a precursor to the eventual move of the gate outside Sun's network and opening up the contribution process yet more.

So we're getting there, bit by bit by bit.
