@Tim: Sure! That'd be awesome. If you would send me a link of the repo page to the email address above, that would be great. – Nathan Osman May 20 '10 at 7:04
@George nice work!! – systempuntoout May 20 '10 at 7:06
@George - Have you picked a license yet? (kind of needed to set that up) .. or lets pick this up in e-mail? – Tim Post May 20 '10 at 7:19
If you want to use Mercurial, why not host it on Codeplex? – Franci Penov May 20 '10 at 7:38
@Tim: I'm thinking of going with the MIT license. – Nathan Osman May 20 '10 at 8:02

@George Edison: Thanks for your quick help! – Ekkehard.Horner May 2 '11 at 18:33

@Novice: it wouldn't work anyway, unfortunately. Version 1.0 of the API was shut down a few months ago. – Nathan Osman Dec 11 '14 at 21:09
