Issue #2327 wontfix

Source file missing from 2.6.1.tar.gz release

created an issue pointed by as the current 2.6.1 source release is missing the thg script (the main one). You can't install it as it is.

Downloading thg directly from the repository and putting it in root of package makes it work again.

    I tried to build the 2.6.1 source package on Windows, and it seems to have caused both problems (changing the filename and not including thg script). This will resolve itself on the next release; I'll go back to using 'python sdist' on Linux.

    For the record, no-one should be downloading that tar-file except package maintainers. Use a clone if you want to run from source.

    Yes Steve Borho, me and C Krooß are archlinux maintainers of the package, that's why we're using the source tarball.

    We have worked around the issue in this release using a script to hot-download the thg file from the repository's 2.6.1 tag.
