--- Comment #1 from Kubilay Kocak <koobs_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
Apologies for the delay responding to this issue.

Mercurials setup.py doesn't include contrib/hg-ssh in its 'scripts' list, which
is what tells setuptools to install things in LOCALBASE/bin. 

My take on this is that things in contrib/* are 'extra' conveniences, to be
used directly by end users, and not necessary to be installed in an integrated
manner on end user systems in the same manner 'hg' is.

In this case you are able at any time to invoke hg-ssh from the location it is
installed, and my understanding of the `env python3` shebang is that is it is
the appropriate PEP-394 compatible invocation.

Users may install the lang/python3 port to install the Python convenience

If you believe hg-ssh warrants inclusion as a 'scripts' for integrated
installation like `hg`, I'd suggest opening an issue upstream and making that
