Hey Matthew,

Looks interesting, I'll certainly grab a copy.

I don't know if you have seen our project, hgfront, but it's a
django-based Mercurial manager thats maybe a little more advanced in
some areas, but certainly missing a few of the features you have!

Both myself and the other developer of hgfront have taken a short
break from developing it, but now we're both back and looking to kick
off the next phase of the app to bring in up to spec.  For example, we
want to re-write the user system from scratch, and have it tie into
the mercurial push/pull permissions.

It already has it's own built in issue tracker as well a wiki and
views that show a repo's details.

If your interested in bringing our two codebases together to get one
excellent mercurial hosting package then please feel free to get in
touch off list.
