Hi Niels and Oliver,

what is you opinion about gui integration? from the available tools I have
the, maybe wrong, impression that hg is better to wrap it into a gui.

I am not sure. With both tools you will rely on command line output
parsing, as there is no way to do a GUI in Python.

but it hopefully will be possible soon ;-) just took a glimpse at the
tortoise code and apparently hg has a api


another glimpse (just ~5min) at tortoise git: really needs to parse the git output :(

As Niels stated, with the hg bookmarks extension it just becomes a matter of taste. The reason why I vote for hg now is that it looks much easier to integrate hg into third party applications/GUI's. Since Haiku is a desktop system I think that's an important point. We have a similar problem with jam by the way...

@Jon: you integrated some VCS's into paladin what's your opinion?
