    Phoronix: Mercurial Revision Control System Continues Rust'ing For Better Performance

    The Mercurial distributed revision control system continues to see use particularly around some large code-base projects and the developers continue working to optimize its performance in part by transitioning more of it to the Rust programming language...

              PyPy still uses Mercurial.

              Honestly Mercurial is a very good solution and viable alternative to Git. Just that the web-based platforms like github spent more effort on git, and now its near unbiquitous.

                  I remember choosing Mercurial instead of Git for my own projects many years ago. At the time it had a better CLI and was easier to use than Git and was good enough for my use. Git ultimately won because it had much better performance, but its CLI is still difficult to use at times. Some competition in this space would be good.

                    Won't ever be good as long as it uses/requires Python.
