Hg Source Control Support


#1

Greetings -

I am working on a project that requires mercurial integration for the deploy provider. I have done some searching, but have failed to find any mercurial integration. Has any implemented a Mercurial Provider? If not I plan on implementing that provider. Would Opscode be interested in a chef core patch?

Patch it and submit it, I see no reason for Chef not to support this -
I do not work for Opscode but I am sure they would accept it.

It would also be easy to put into a mercurial cookbook, to deploy it
as an LWRP. That way it could be available for patching and updates
outside of the Chef release schedule.

Hi,

This may be a little late to help, but I just saw your message now. I
implemented a basic LWRP which allows cloning and syncing with Mercurial
repositories a few months ago; it’s hosted on Bitbucket at
https://bitbucket.org/niallsco/chef-cookbooks.

If you implemented your own provider I’d be interested to hear from you.
