RhodeCode is a powerful and fast Mercurial and GIT management utility featuring full text search and code-review, together with a built in push/pull server.
RhodeCode works on http/https and has a built in permission/authentication system with the ability to authenticate via LDAP or ActiveDirectory.
RhodeCode is similar in some respects to bitbucket or github, however it can be run as standalone hosted app on your own server.
RhodeCode focuses more on providing a self administered and customized interface for GIT and Mercurial repositories.
RhodeCode is a cross-platform solution which works on *nix systems and Windows and it is powered by a vcs library deisgned by Lukasz Balcerzak and Marcin Kuzminski to handle multiple different version control systems.
Detailed instructions on how you can install RhodeCode on your own Mac are available HERE.
