Talks we gave at FOSDEM 20202020-02-5
Octobus was at FOSDEM 2020, which was, as usual, a success for the free and open-source community, and tons of fun.
Georges gave a lightning talk about Heptapod, our friendly fork of Gitlab with support for Mercurial. The video should become available in the coming days at this link. In short, Heptapod is more alive than ever, with a free instance for FOSS projects that qualify and a commercial option coming very soon. Fear not, Heptapod is FOSS itself, you can also run it self-hosted. See the announcements for more information: https://heptapod.net/category/announcements.html
Georges getting ready for his lightning talk:
Raphaël gave two talks on the subject of bridging Python and Rust together, one in the Python devroom and one in the Rust devroom. Interesting progress is being made in Rust/Python FFI within rust-cpython, Mercurial is always getting faster, and even more so in the near future.

I hope you enjoyed your FOSDEM! If you could not come, we hope to see you there next year. Who knows, we might have more good news for Mercurial and FOSS in general. ;)
