+The remote-helper bridges to access data stored in Mercurial and
+Bazaar are maintained outside the git.git tree in the repositories
+of its primary author:
+
+ https://github.com/felipec/git-remote-hg (for Mercurial)
+ https://github.com/felipec/git-remote-bzr (for Bazaar)
+
+You can pick a directory on your $PATH and download them from these
+repositories, e.g.:
+
+ $ wget -O $HOME/bin/git-remote-hg \
+ https://raw.github.com/felipec/git-remote-hg/master/git-remote-hg
+ $ wget -O $HOME/bin/git-remote-bzr \
+ https://raw.github.com/felipec/git-remote-bzr/master/git-remote-bzr
+ $ chmod +x $HOME/bin/git-remote-hg $HOME/bin/git-remote-bzr
+
+As a convenience, copies of the last-bundled version of these two
+remote-helper bridges are still kept here, but they may become
+stale over time.
