Integration of apache common vfs and mercurial

Can Apache common vfs api retrieve/update/add files from/to the Mercurial version control system? Common vfs does have an interface api for accessing vcs. Is there a provider for Mercurial?

Answer 1

I don't think there is one. Mercurial is very much built with a "you should have the whole history local" mindset. Any remote access short of synchronization or casual web browsing is generally considered unsupported. Even accessing mercurial repos over nfs or other network file systems is advised against.

There are a few projects that use mercurial as their backends (things like ikiwiki), but remote access isn't generally a suggested config.

I have to admit the last time I programmed in Java was a data structures class in high school. So please be kind to this Java noob.

This library relies heavily on some new .Net technologies (WPF being the big one) so translating it into another language is not really an option. I have tested consuming this library from C++ through the CO...
