comment Why did Git get so much hype? …while others don't?
1: I wonder: Why the focus on "branch by cloning" in the Hg documentation (see for instance hgbook.red-bean.com/read/a-tour-of-mercurial-the-basics.html and mercurial.selenic.com/guide)? To me, it just seems messy to have one repository per branch. 2: I am not saying git is better, my answer is more of an observation on a matter that to me (a Hg novice) looks like a difference between the two. The difference seems to be more cultural than technical, since Hg also supports "branch within same repository".

comment Building a DSL: Scripted atop a general-purpose language or stand-alone?
Better suited than what? I guess Ruby and Python have many of the same benefits, Ruby is maybe even better suited for internal DSL because of its more flexible syntax. As for Java and C#, I've seen many a fine fluent interface in those languages (and there are constructs in newer versions that make internal DSL creation/use easier, like object initializer syntax) - but IMO the "low ceremony" languages are slightly better suited than "high ceremony" languages.
