The Mercurial and GitHub repos are automatically synced bi-directionally, so if a pull request is merged it will show up in Mercurial within minutes.

Anyone with an account on Shepherd can request write access to the Mercurial repo in the user menu (upper right corner), select “Repository Access”.
