Where did you see this? libvirt has used git for a very long time, and
I've never previously heard of any suggestion to use a mercurial tool to
send a patch to libvir-list. Either the page is *way* out of date, or
referring to something else.

Up-to-date instructions for sending patches are in the HACKING file in
the toplevel directory of the libvirt tree. Basically, use "git
send-email" if at all possible.

This is the correct place to ask such questions. :-)
