I'm sure I'm missing something simple. For a particular project, say ccmr, I choose Mercurial as the SCM with path /srv/repos/hg/ccmr, Save, and absolutely nothing happens. It doesn't even create the folder. For another project, mdo, I created the folder and it looks just like the helloworld Hg folder, but again nada. When I copied the py file in helloworld to the mdo folder, it didn't show up. Basically, I can't get off the ground with Hg.

Thanks. I had to execute the script commands by hand. The script got a permission error. But it all looks good and I have a /srv/repos/hg/ccmr/.hg folder that has 

And in the project I said the path was /srv/repos/hg/ccmr. Also tried /srv/repos/hg/ccmr/.hg.  Both result in
Entry or revision was not found in repository.
Is that just because there's nothing there?

Thank you Your Awesomeness. Now to see if I can figure out how Hg works...

Hmm. Actually, next thing is how to password and SSL it. Any words of wisdom?

Unfortunately, no.  I use it via VPN, so I don't need the encryption.  Maybe someone else can help...

Remember, this isn't really a TKL thing - Mercurial is used all over the world, and it might help to browse the web for Mercurial tutorials on how to actually use it.  Joel Spoolsky is a big proponet of Mercurial, and he's put out a couple of really good tutorials.
