Assuming you downloaded the monotone database (as instructed in
UsingPidginMonotone) recently, it should be relatively up-to-date
already, and you may not need to pull anything.  (This is, indeed, a
better solution, as it does not chew up limited resources required for
those doing actual work.)

If your monotone continues to not pull, I suspect a local network
problem; make sure you're allowed to connect out on port 4691.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
