Facebook just open sourced a new extension for +Mercurial called hgsql. It allows you to do horizontal scaling of your Mercurial servers horizontally to better distribute the load.

It has always been easy to create read-replicas with Mercurial (or any other DVCS) since you can just setup some servers with mirrors of your main repository. To avoid multiple heads, though, writes would still have to go to a single master server. With the hgsql extension, you can now have multiple such masters. They synchronize using a MySQL database, which (assuming I understood the architecture correct) then becomes the central point of failure. I guess that is still an advantage since reads are handled by the Mercurial servers and there are standard techniques (such as replication) to avoid relying on the availability of a single MySQL server.

"A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the
violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45
minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.
Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing.
He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.
A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.
A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work. The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All
the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.
In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition. No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.
Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.
This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was
organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected
context?

In a major victory brought upon by serious activism and public outrage, new legislation changes will shut down the Monsanto Protection Act rider that granted Monsanto protection from legal action and was set to renew on September 30th.
