As part of the discussions on the new test suite for the Contacts API
[1], I have set up a repository for our Working Group on W3C's Mercurial
server, dvcs.w3.org ; Mercurial is a so called decentralized versioning
control system, similar to CVS but more powerful in its ability to
manage branches and merges (as well as more modern in terms of
management of directories, files moving, etc).

Mercurial has already been adopted by a number of W3C groups for
managing their test suites (and some of their specifications as well),
so it makes sense we would align with that.

Our repository has been configured so that the latest version of its
content be visible on http://w3c-test.org/dap/

Every participant in our Working Group has automatically write access to
the repository, using your traditional W3C Web account credentials.

Anyone (both inside and outside our group) can checkout the content of
the repository using the command "hg clone https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dap"
The content of the repository can also be browsed from 

Introducing how Mercurial works would be beyond the scope of this
announcement; there are some early documentation in the W3C Tools wiki,
that you should feel free to consult and complete:
