I've shared a lot of links to our Mercurial repository, both at
Atari-forum and there are several links in our repository too:
	$ git grep mercurialroot

I can convert links in the repository to point to the git repository,
but there are few problems:

* People using Hatari releases; their links point still to Mercurial
    repository, so it would be good if that repository (at least doc/
    directory) would still remain e.g. for a year or two, if possible

That's a double-edged sword ... if we keep the hg repo around, there
might be people who have checked it out and try to "hg update" it now
and then. They will not notice that we switched to mercurial as long as
there is no error...

One option is to replace src directory with:
--- src.txt ---
New repository is at: <git repo URL>

And change top level build scripts to show that.

But ok, everybody using the latest release should still get valid
links. So I'd suggest to keep it around until we released another public
version, but then decomission it immediately afterwards.

* TuxFamily Git nginx server isn't configured to provide correct
    content types for Git repository, only for Mercurial one.

That's unfortunate ... I'll try to set up a cron job that copies the
files from git to the webserver...

Can't correct content types be provided also for Git repo?
