Difference between GitHub and Mercurial Galaxy download...

Asma Riyaz
Hi,

Is there a difference between the github and mercurial galaxy downloads? Is there one preferred over another? The galaxy website asks to do a Github download and many other places including the GMOD tutorial held last summer on Galaxy suggested a mercurial one?
Kindly advice.

Thank you,
Asma

Hello Asma,

Galaxy recently migrated from mercurial (on Bitbucket) to git (on GitHub). If you are starting new production Galaxy going with GitHub (master branch) is a good choice. If you are maintaining older version of Galaxy you can also safely continue to use https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-dist repository (mercurial).
