Hi there,

    I got a mercurial mirror of numpy available. I put some basic info 
on the wiki

http://scipy.org/scipy/numpy/wiki/HgMirror

I don't know mercurial so much, so I only put some instructions to get 
started. It will force me to get more familiar with the mercurial 
features which are different from bzr, too (I will put more info then; 
in particular, merging works a bit differently).
    Some info:
    - the import was done with hgsvn.
    - The mirror contains only the trunk, and not from the start: it 
looks like hgsvn does not follow svn copy, and as such, it started 
importing from the scipy_core -> numpy rename. Still, there is the whole 
trunk history from 2 years.
    - The .hg directory only takes 17 Mb. With the working tree, it 
takes 27 Mb, that is only 3 Mb less than a recent svn checkout.
    - for some reasons, when you clone the hg repository, the tags with 
svn revisions are lost. If anyone knows how to avoid that (it is really 
useful to find a hg revision corresponding to a svn revision)

    cheers,

    David
