Hi Anath,

Great news that you've moved to Codeplex! Just curious if you've considered switching to a DVCS, now that Codeplex supports Mercurial. We really love it at

I am considering switching to mercurial, but the main thing stopping me is no "externals". This is something that I find really nice, but have to "fake" with mercurial. I'm open to any suggestions! :)

Interesting - I wasn't aware of externals in subversion...pretty cool.

The most related topic I've seen would be the NuGet package management tool - I've heard that the core module supports command-line driven management, in addition to the VS UI. Obviously this is for precompiled libraries, though.

I have been meaning to package Brahma and OpenCL.Net up for NuGet for a while now, perhaps this is as good a time as any! Thanks for the pointer!
