+============================
+Quick notes for contributors
+============================
+
+Distribute is using Mercurial. 
+
+Grab the code at bitbucket::
+
+
+    $ hg clone https://tarek@bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute distribute
+    
+If you want to work in the 0.6 branch, you have to switch to it::
+
+    $ hg branch 0.6-maintenance
+    marked working directory as branch 0.6-maintenance
+    
+    $ hg branch
+    0.6-maintenance
+
+If you make some changes, don't forget to:
+
+- backport it to the 0.7 branch
+- add a note in CHANGES.txt
+
+And remember that 0.6 is only bug fixes, and the APIs should
+be fully backward compatible with Setuptools.
