Project Name

Add Source Server Support for Mercurial

Project Description

Previously we added source indexing to release builds using CVS as a backend for pulling source files. Since then, Mozilla has moved to Mercurial from CVS. This project will add support so that Mercurial can be used too. See bug# 440001.
