Target version:-


When using python scripts during the build, .pyc files will be generated. The devzone doesn't allow to push these to hosted repos (for security reasons I assume). I had to strip and rebuild several revisions after I added the .pyc files.

It would be useful if *.pyc were in the .hgignore by default when shipped.
Of course, people could just not hg add .pyc files, but it's an easy accident when they're in a directory.

It may be that people should just edit their own .hgignore for this - but I think it will come up again as an issue.

(Eddi had a similar issue with CETS)
