We are attempting to establish gitlab.com as our upstream repository host. For this to happen, we need to get rid of any Mercurial dependencies in our code base.

What to change

Switch from using Mercurial to Git for the releaseAutomation. While at it, re-implement the logic in releaseAutomation.py as a NodeJS script in adblockpluschrome

Most of the complexity in our release automation is because we archive release builds, but that will soon be done by other means (webext#45, webext#54), leaving following tasks:

  1. Bumping the version
  2. Adding a release tag
  3. Creating a release build (for upload to the stores)

I'm not sure if we necessarily need automation for this. Note that for releases for Microsoft Edge, I'm already doing the above steps manually for a while, since the release automation doesn't support diverging version numbers for individual release targets.

Sorry, but we switched to GitLab. If this issue is still relevant, please file it again in the new issue tracker.
