That would be great test for the release documentation!  I am planning  
to work on the checkers framework for a bit.

I have not.  I looked at different tools of conversion.  Some forums  
indicated unreliability of some of the tools; but did not look very  
closely.  Anyway, the conversion shouldn't be too problematic.

For now, I will convert both repositories and put them in my locker  
research folder.

I support converting checkers framework repository to mercurial too.   
Now that we have some interest for writing extra checkers, it would be  
nice to have a public repository.  Mercurial (or any D-SCM) would make  
it easier for the clients to update their local modified versions.

It is quite awful.  I tried it.
