Mercurial is setup. We have sub Domains setup on the server each assigned to a developer to which developers will push their code revisions.
Developers will need instructions on when and how to push code. All developers have received a Mercurial introduction document. Credentials need to be assigned.
We need you to be available when we need you to train, answer questions and to merge the code. We want a basic Mercurial setup. We will only have about 6 developers working at one time but at times they will be adding features to the same code. The majority of the time developers will be working on separate modules. We need you to train a couple of people to be able to handle only our needs as a junior merge-masters.
Our initial urgent task is to get all the developers setup and working in their sub-domains. We would like you to be available to do the merging and train 2 of us in the process. We are in the middle of development and cannot have any prolonged delays. If you bid on this project then you will need to be available until we can handle Mercurial ourselves. We have senior developers with over 12 years experience. In the midst of this there cannot be any days when you are not available unless agreed upon in advance.
You must have excellent English communication ability and a friendly, patient, cooperative personality with no ego or attitude. You have to be able to explain how Mercurial works to the level we need for it to be useful to the fullest extend for our development project.
Hours will vary. Initially we will need more hours with a decline as we gain more experience.
