How to use Mercurial with CodePlex

I got an email about CodePlex upgrading their TFS servers. It had the following note (among other things) **The information in this e-mail applies to project coordinators and developers that are using TFS with the Team Explorer client. If you are using Mercurial or a Subversion client, then nothing will change for you** I didn't know you could use Mercurial with CodePlex? How would you do that? I find nothing about Mercurial on the Source Code tab of my projects. Only - Subversion - Visual Studio Team Explorer - Team Explorer Everywhere - CodePlex Client No Mercurial. Is this a hidden feature or what's going on? (And also, seriously, what's the deal with no line breaks or anything in discussion posts? My post looks like a complete mess =/ )

Support for Mercurial was added earlier this year (check out the blog announcement).  If you would like to have your project converted to Mercurial you can submit a request using our Contact Us form.

Regarding the line feed problem, we've been getting some reports of various problems with the TinyMCE editor but it seems to only affect a small number of people.  We're planning to try upgrading to the latest version of the TinyMCE editor in the next few days and hopefully that will fix it.
