It seems you didn't apply the 'hg convert' patches:
So the committer is missing, and comments, and mtn ids are not
converted to hg ids.
In addition to that, you don't have the extra mtn information that
last I checked Richard Laager was interested in keeping (like mtn id).
Moreover, you merged my 'test' bookmark which wasn't supposed to be
merged, and now the scripts aren't actually doing any conversion.
Also, since the last commit was 16 months ago, and the last tag is
v2.7.11, I don't think this is a proper conversion at all.

You merged unintended changes.
I don't see any other changes in pidgin-mtn-conv-files than mine, and
last time I checked those scripts were definitely not ready for
At the very least I see this list of unmapped authors:

Many should be fixed.
Also, there is the topic of author mapping convention. Richard Laager
mentioned something like:
john <john at snow.com>
John Snow <unknown>
That can be easily done with 'mtn git_export'.
At this point in time I think the mtn -> git -> hg conversion is in
1) monotone information
Monotone-Author: markdoliner at pidgin.im
2) Multiple changelogs are maintained
3) Proper default author mappings
4) Much faster
Right now both methods require patching mercurial extensions, but when
I'm done with mine that won't be needed.
