I think I don't have edit access to the Trac Wiki...

Anyway, it'd be useful to also have either hg or bzr read-only mirror of
scipy too! 

I'd actually like to see these mirrors hosted at some single "official"
place (svn.scipy.org?): If everyone maintains their own SVN mirror, the
resulting repositories typically turn out "unrelated" as far as the SCM
programs are concerned (because of different start points, different
conversion tools etc.), and one cannot easily pull and merge changes
from other people's repositories.

It will work by just pasting the contents of localtags to .hgtags and
committing. However, this would need to be done periodically and would
pollute the history a bit.
