Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Mercurial - A Mercurial plugin for Dist::Zilla


version 0.08


In your dist.ini:



This plugin provides Mercurial support for Dist::Zilla. Currently, it supports checking that the working copy is clean before release, tagging, and pushing changes to the remote. The tag plugin also checks before tagging to make sure that the tag it wants to use is unique.

Currently, this plugin does not support committing, so it won't play nice with plugins that make changes to the working copy before release. Patches are welcome.


Please report any bugs or feature requests to, or through the web interface at I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.


If you'd like to thank me for the work I've done on this module, please consider making a "donation" to me via PayPal. I spend a lot of free time creating free software, and would appreciate any support you'd care to offer.

Please note that I am not suggesting that you must do this in order for me to continue working on this particular software. I will continue to do so, inasmuch as I have in the past, for as long as it interests me.

Similarly, a donation made in this way will probably not make me work on this software much more, unless I get so many donations that I can consider working on free software full time, which seems unlikely at best.

To donate, log into PayPal and send money to or use the button on this page:
