RabbitVCS without Mercurial support

PPA description

This PPA provides temporary fix for bug 1840082.

It removes Mercurial support from RabbitVCS.
So we can use TortoiseHG for this purpose instead with any file-names (including non-latin - Cyrillic as example).

cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/apt/preferences.d/pin-rabbitvcs-nohg
Package: *

Pin-Priority: 1337


Remove with

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/pin-rabbitvcs-nohg
sudo ppa-purge ppa:nrbrtx/rabbitvcs-nohg
