When Django was still using subversion, I used to mirror stable branches (1.2 when I started, 1.4 recently). This worked well and I could clone those repositories on production servers, and then it was just a matter of ‘hg pull -u’ to bring updates/fixes. Now.. Django has moved to git. I won’t comment on how […]

The documentation for Django mentions an “official” mirror for mercurial. Django got us used to a very high standard when it comes to quality. Unfortunately, this is exactly the contrary for this mirror. It’s quite often broken, or not updated, or both. The last itch is that nobody has taken care of it since the […]

Another Django release, another branch, another mercurial mirror… ¬†Cloning this one will costs you ~35Mb on your hard disk, compared to 167Mb for the official django mirror. This is updated once a day from the official svn, and it’s gonna stay for a long time : https://bitbucket.org/orzel/django-1.4-production/ For some reason, the 1.4 branch was not […]

Though, this has several […]

Django recently released the 1.3 version, and as such a new ‘stable’ branch was created in subversion. As I did for the 1.2 branch, there’s now a mercurial mirror, following the 1.3 branch. It is updated every (european) night. The 1.2 mirror is not removed, it is still running and maintained. The url for this […]

I have tried for the last few years to use one of the mercurial mirrors on bitbucket.org to follow Django. Since far before Django 1.0 was released, I was following trunk, but I have switched to the stable branch around Django 1.1. I’ve always had problems with the mirrors on bitbucket, they seem mostly unmaintained. […]
