Status of BitBucket plugin

Hi folks, I'm new to Git and BitBucket, wanted to started using BitBucket for a personal project, both for its advantages, and to get used to the workflow and IDEA integration.

I installed the BitBucket plugin in the 12.519 EAP, and got several errors on startup, so I disabled it. There's a been a release relatively recently, but there are a number of issues in its issue tracker ( that don't appear to have been addressed at all for quite a while.

So here's what I'm interested to know:

  • Are people using the BitBucket connector?
  • Is it thought to be stable?
  • Is anyone using with the 12.x EAPs, and if so, are you finding it stable?
  • How stable has it been historically? How about with EAPs?
  • Are people using it with Git repos, and does that affect stability?

Thanks, just trying to figure out the least-hassle way to get my feet wet and get some work done in that environment. I truly love IDEA, and would be happiest if I could manage BitBucket through it, like I do my local SVN. OTOH, if it's unstable, I think it'd be confusing for a newcomer, and would rather find another way, probably TortoiseHg, since I'm already using TortoiseSVN.

Thanks for any thoughts,

And just to point out, there's nearly zero forum traffic anbout it, like it's not used much. Odd.
