Handling Mercurial repositories

I am currently looking into Gradle’s ability to handle Mercurial repositories. The only plugin I have found so far is https://bitbucket.org/coherentsoftware/gradle-mercurialmqplugin. Unfortunately it does not seem to be updated very often. The last udpate was mid of 2014.

Is anyone using this plugin? Can it be considered stable? Or are there any other plugin for Mercurial?

Looks like under the covers the plugin simply calls out to mercurial via the command-line. I imagine if it works it’s probably safe to use as there aren’t a lot of moving parts that are likely to break. You might also consider developing something yourself, perhaps on top of Hg4J, which is likely to be a bit more portable.

Thanks. I will give the plugin a try first then.
