The master copy of the source code for libpurple, Pidgin, Finch, http://pidgin.im/, and http://imfreedom.org/ resides in [http://mercurial.selenic.com/ Mercurial] repositories.
-== Background ==
-Pidgin's Mercurial repositories are served by the [http://www.lshift.net/mercurial-server.html mercurial-server] package. This relies entirely upon SSH key-based authentication, providing access control and a layer of accountability.
-== Anonymous Pull (Non-Developers) ==
+== Public Read-only Access ==
All Pidgin Mercurial repositories are available via HTTP from [http://hg.pidgin.im http://hg.pidgin.im].
-== Developers ==
+== Read/Write Access for Developers/CPW's/SoC Students ==
=== Configure Mercurial ===
-Mercurial uses an rc file to control its configuration. There are several that affect your use. One set of them is in `/etc/mercurial` and is controlled by your package manager. The others are entirely under your control. Each repository has its own `hgrc` file in `repository/.hg/hgrc` which can be used to configure Mercurial's behavior when interacting with that repository. Finally, there is `~/.hgrc`, which affects Mercurial's behavior for any repository your user account touches.
+Mercurial is configured through serveral rc files. You can override the system-wide settings on a per-user or per-repository basis by changing either `~/.hgrc` or `<repository>/.hg/hgrc`. See `man hgrc` for details.
-When working with Pidgin's Mercurial repositories, we expect you to have at least a minimum configuration that gives your name in the 'First Last <email at address.tld>' format. To do that, two simple lines need to be inserted into an appropriate `hgrc` (I believe most people will want to do this in `~/.hgrc`):
+You must set your username when working with Pidgin's Mercurial repositories. To do that, add two lines to `~/.hgrc` (or optionally `<repository>/.hg/hgrc`, if you want to use a different username for other Mercurial repositories):
username = First Last <email at address.tld>
