bitbucket, Mercurial 

While I'm not at all surprised that Bitbucket finally is purging #Mercurial, I'm still sad.

@JordiGH it's such a hostile mood. I tweeted about it but i should toot about it too.

Every other hosting platform either made the repos read-only or converted mercurial to git.

@vickysteeves Oh, I didn't know you cared!

I can only hope that this may be the final drive to push us towards a better hosting service. Maybe Heptapod will finally come of age.

@JordiGH I have a funded project about preserving scholarship in these platforms (investigating-archiving-git.gi) :) tho it is git focused, this is troubling from a general archiving software perspective (which I care about a lot!)

@vickysteeves Ah, so it's not hg you care about so much as preservation?

@JordiGH what is HG?

I care that a company is being a bad-faith actor, too. Efff that noise!

@vickysteeves Hg, chemical symbol for mercury, thus the abbreviation for Mercurial.
