create moin/2.0 repo, drop all history (see notes below) Up to now, we used the moin/2.0-dev repository (which was cloned from another, older moin repo quite some time ago). Over the years, these repositories got rather fat (>200MB) and were a pain to clone over slow, high-latency or unreliable connections. After having finished most of the dirty work in moin2, having killed all the 3rd party code we had bundled with (is now installed by quickinstall / pip / setuptools), it is now a good time to get rid of the history (the history made up most of the repository's size). If you need to look at the history, look there: http://hg.moinmo.in/moin/2.0-dev The new moin/2.0 repository has the files as of this changesets: http://hg.moinmo.in/moin/2.0-dev/rev/075132a755dc The changeset hashes that link the repositories will be tagged (in both repositories) as "moin20-repo-reboot".

1 A. HISTORY OF THE SOFTWARE
2 ==========================
3
4 Python was created in the early 1990s by Guido van Rossum at Stichting
5 Mathematisch Centrum (CWI) in the Netherlands as a successor of a
6 language called ABC. Guido is Python's principal author, although it
7 includes many contributions from others. The last version released
8 from CWI was Python 1.2. In 1995, Guido continued his work on Python
9 at the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) in Reston,
10 Virginia where he released several versions of the software. Python
11 1.6 was the last of the versions released by CNRI. In 2000, Guido and
12 the Python core development team moved to BeOpen.com to form the
13 BeOpen PythonLabs team. Python 2.0 was the first and only release
14 from BeOpen.com.
15
16 Following the release of Python 1.6, and after Guido van Rossum left
17 CNRI to work with commercial software developers, it became clear that
18 the ability to use Python with software available under the GNU Public
19 License (GPL) was very desirable. CNRI and the Free Software
20 Foundation (FSF) interacted to develop enabling wording changes to the
21 Python license. Python 1.6.1 is essentially the same as Python 1.6,
22 with a few minor bug fixes, and with a different license that enables
23 later versions to be GPL-compatible. Python 2.1 is a derivative work
24 of Python 1.6.1, as well as of Python 2.0.
25
26 After Python 2.0 was released by BeOpen.com, Guido van Rossum and the
27 other PythonLabs developers joined Digital Creations. All
28 intellectual property added from this point on, starting with Python
29 2.1 and its alpha and beta releases, is owned by the Python Software
30 Foundation (PSF), a non-profit modeled after the Apache Software
31 Foundation. See http://www.python.org/psf/ for more information about
32 the PSF.
33
34 Thanks to the many outside volunteers who have worked under Guido's
35 direction to make these releases possible.
