pkgsrc mirror available via Mercurial SCM (Updated)
lets us know
that he has setup a Mercurial pkgsrc mirror.
is (yet another) distributed versioning system (AKA "something like CVS")
that has a long list of features, e.g. easy setup of private repositories.
To start playing, install pkgsrc/devel/mercurial
and get going.
Peter Schuller has told me the steps to get started :
- Install Mercurial:
cd pkgsrc/devel/mercurial ; make install
- For the initial checkout, run:
hg clone http://hg.scode.org/mirror/pkgsrc /usr/pkgsrc
- To update the tree at any point in the future, run:
cd /usr/pkgsrc && hg pull && hg update
The first command, "hg pull", pulls changesets from the remote
repository to the local repository, "hg update" updates the
working copy to reflect the local repository. You'll be able
to find the Mercurial meta-data in /usr/pkgsrc/.hg.
