It would be nice if redmine handle the repository creation automatically or via a button.

Currently this is done via cron and reposman.rb, and it seems only subversion is supported.

I agree. I'm in the process of moving to Redmine for bug tracking, but I'm going to have to use RhodeCode for managing the corresponding Mercurial repository for each project.

It would be really nice if the features of RhodeCode could be included in Redmine (e.g. if RhodeCode could be turned into a plugin for Redmine) so that users wouldn't have to have to log in to two pieces of software, have to choose between viewing the source code via Redmine or via RhodeCode, etc.

Maybe this should be part of issue #4455?

I can confirm, reposman works nicely for hg repos, I use this in a cronjob:

/home/dev/redmine/extra/svn/reposman.rb --svn-dir=/home/ottdc/hg-repos --url=/home/ottdc/hg-repos --redmine-host=dev.openttdcoop.org --key=XXX --owner=ottdc --group=ottdc --scm=mercurial --command="hg init" | grep -v "/home/ottdc/hg-repos/redmine :"

Together with HGRedmine and the HG overhaul, redmine rocks for mercurial, maybe best supported vcs. :-)
