Re: [tycho-dev] mercurial build timestamp provider

AFAICT mercurial is licensed under GPLv2; this is probably a no-go for hosting the code at eclipse for license reasons.
(Even if there is no compile-time dependency to hg).
That said, there are probably ways to deploy the binaries to maven central [1] so people can still use it.
Should you decide to do this, don't use the org.eclipse.tycho maven groupId.

Subject: [tycho-dev] mercurial build timestamp provider


I've done some work to build a mercurial build timestamp provider as an alternative to the jgit provider in the current tycho.extras. It is possible to get this included in tycho.extras and if so, what is the process? 

I've made a fork on github containing my plugin, see [1].

It is largely based on the existing jgit timestamp provider. Unlike the jgit version, this plugin invokes a mercurial executable. This has an obvious problem of failing to work if mercurial (i.e. "hg") is not available on the PATH.
