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

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.
