Announcing the Mercurial public Bitbucket archive


Back in April of this year we announced a partnership with Software Heritage to archive all public Mercurial data on Bitbucket before they remove it permanently.

Now that the Bitbucket deadline is well behind us, we are happy to say that the public archive website we've promised is complete and visible at the following URL:

You will find all of the data we were able to download from Bitbucket's API (and some help from their VCS team, thanks!) in a very simple static index.

Note: if you want to download the entire archive (it's about 6TB) or a large portion of it, please contact us or Software Heritage before writing your own crawlers and abusing the server, we will be happy to help.
