About eigen and mercurial

Hi,

This is mostly for Marcus who expressed disappointment at Eigen not
using Github like Avogadro does, as that would open some interesting
possibilities.
I just found out that actually, if you want to check out the
development tree at any time (no lag, it’s on demand) without using
Mercurial at all, you can just use this URL:

http://bitbucket.org/eigen/eigen2/get/default.tar.bz2

You can replace “tar.bz2” by “tar.gz” or “zip”, and you can replace
"default" by any branch or tag name.

Cheers,
Benoit

Hi Benoit,

I got over it. I am more interested in being able to pull the latest
changes. GtiHub offers something very similar to download head right
now. I know KDE’s SVN layout is pretty strange, and a challenge for any
migration effort. I will learn enough Hg to track Eigen development. You
never know - I might even like it.

Best wishes,

Marcus
