After several months of getting acquainted with "distributed version 
control" in general, we should be finally ready to switch the official 
Isabelle repository to Mercurial.

In fact, http://isabelle.in.tum.de/repos/isabelle has been around in the 
present form for several weeks already.  It can already be cloned right 
now, e.g. like this:

  hg clone http://isabelle.in.tum.de/repos/isabelle

Further instructions are in 

Write access to the corresponding pull/push file space is not enabled yet, 
and we still have the automated conversion job that feeds changes from the 
old Isabelle CVS into the Mercurial repository.

After pressing the red button, the conversion job will be stopped and 
pushing enabled.

If anybody has significant amounts of uncommitted CVS changes in the 
pipeline, please say so now.  In principle, one could have both 
repositories active for a few days, and merge later using means of 
Mercurial, but things should be kept as simple as possible.
