Mercurial repo available

I am happy and proud to announce that I am now providing a Mercurial 
repo ( which is synced regularly from 
the main CVS repo.

So all friends of the distributed SCM, here is what you do to get stuff 

cd /usr/pkgsrc/devel
fetch -O - | tar 
xzf -
cd mercurial
bmake install

mv /usr/src /usr/src.cvs
hg clone /usr/src
# later...
cd /usr/src && hg pull
actually you might want to
hg clone -U 

and then
hg clone /path/to/dragonfly-src-in /usr/src
so that you have a pristine copy of the repo locally available and have 
your own branch in /usr/src.  Having /path/to/dragonfly-src-in and 
/usr/src (in general all local branches) on the same filesystem will 
save lots of space as mercurial can use hardlinks.

For an excellent analysis of distributed SCM in general and Mercurial 
especially, have a look at Ollivier Robert's (roberto at xxxxxxxxxxx) 
paper for eurobsdcon 2005:

feedback welcome, as always.
