Actullay I have some hg repositories at work and the one thing I find
lacking is hg view doesn't let me filter on a set of paths like gitk.
Anyways, I found this suited my needs better:


Its written in python and imports the Mercurial objects to access hg
data then feeds it though a pipe to git to write its .pack file; it
doesn't require third party libraries to be compiled and installed
or try to write git files directly.

Exporting the entire Aboriginal tree with git init; hg-fast-export.sh
took 7 seconds on my laptop and a git repack -a -f took less than 2 and
reduced the object store from 5k blocks to about 2K.  (I let the .git
sit next to .hg and therefore don't need any args, just .git in .hginore).
