Getting a free lunch? Bitbucket is now free.

I’ve always been told there’s no such thing as a free lunch, but an email I received this morning appears to contradict this mantra!

I switched to Mercurial for my own personal/project source control earlier this year, abandoning subversion after many a happy year. When I made the switch, rather than host mercurial myself and have to worry about back-ups and the like, I signed up for a 10 repository plan with bitbucket, which was a meagre £10 a month. I had to do some creative merging of repositories to get all my projects into 10, but I was more than happy with the platform.

This morning however, I received a free lunch - an email that my plan was now free. They’ve teamed up with Atlassian and are now offering unlimited private and public repositories with 5 users for free!! I’ve not been able to find a catch :)
