"The Microsoft CodePlex.com team has donated $25,000 to the
Mercurial project, responding to the recent appeal by the project
leader, Matt Mackall. Earlier this year we added Mercurial as a
choice on CodePlex to provide an option to our users to use a
distributed version control system. Since then, there have been
over 1,500 new projects using Mercurial, as well as numerous
projects that have migrated from other forges to CodePlex.com.
"While Team Foundation Server is still the most used version
control system on CodePlex, our users are clearly benefiting from
having access to Mercurial for their open source projects. The
CodePlex team is happy to be able to offer our community of more
than 17,000 projects a choice. With Mercurial as an important
feature of CodePlex, we are excited to be making this donation to
help support the Mercurial project."
