I’ve decided to start moving my projects over to Mercurial from Monotone. I like Monotone, but there are a tonne of neat services available if you use either Mercurial or Git. I’ve been using git-svn at work, and I’ve found it pretty good (better than dealing directly with svn) - but I don’t like git that much. Mercurial looks a lot like Monotone, and I can use google code for hosting, so I’m going with that.

I found this useful page showing how to convert from Monotone to Mercurial using the Tailor tool. Tailor seems to have broken with recent versions of mercurial, so you might find yourself needing this patch:

diff -rN old-tailor/vcpx/repository/hg.py new-tailor/vcpx/repository/hg.py
361c361
<             self._ui = ui.ui(project.verbose, debug, not debug, False)
---
>             self._ui = ui.ui()

Otherwise, those instructions worked perfectly for me, with the change that it’s --module not -module.
