A short but unfortunate update:

the new mercurial server is freezing for unknown reasons at the moment
and I've just been told that the deployment is now delayed by a week so
that they can guarantee that the service is going to be stable and
usable. It seems that the server can't handle its current load (other
services are currently on the machine), and they might need to pull out
an old machine from a dusty corner in order to satisfy our request in a
timely manner. They need to do more fixing and testing than expected on
our future testing repository server.

I apologize about the extra delay,

Philippe
