I didn't know about it.  (I asked earlier on this thread whether there
was a "dump" file format for Mercurial, and nobody mentioned one.)

Of course, a single "lingua franca" format that works across VCSs would
be even more convenient, but if the bundle format is usable and
reasonably well documented, then I would certainly look into it.  Where
is it documented and how do I load such a thing into an hg repository?
