Please don't use #Mercurial. It's not well-maintained software.
People like to point out that Mercurial works great for a few BigTech corporations. That's great for them. The side effect is that the development is focused on these corporations, and if you find a bug that doesn't affect them, you better be ready to provide a fix yourself.
#Python 3. The first release with Python 3 was made *two months* before Python 2 went EOL.
#RustLang. Funny thing is, Mercurial with Rust extensions enabled still doesn't work on Python 3.12. Apparently, they've chosen to use some NIH Python/Rust bridge rather than PyO3.
